This is Planet Earth.

Luke Jerram’s giant installation of the planet Earth, ‘Gaia’ will open in Leicester Cathedral’s nave next month.

Measuring seven metres in diameter, Gaia features detailed imagery of the Earth’s surface, compiled from NASA’s Visible Earth series and will be open to the public (online booking required) from 17 May – 6 June 2021.

A series of seven special events themed around the seven continents will be staged beneath Gaia including a Dean’s Discussion with Antarctic Explorer Frida Bengtsson, a didgeridoo workshop for all the family and a film screening of He Named Me Malala.
