Poppy Fields by Luxmuralis is an emotional sound and light show which takes you on an immersive journey around the cathedral, a journey of reflection and hope. The art works reflect on the end of World War One and World War Two as well as looking ahead for peace in our world.

As you step inside the ancient surround of the cathedral, you will be enveloped in a sea of poppies tumbling down the old stone walls, some still baring their own lasting scars of wars they have weathered. Within the installations is a moving tribute to the NHS, which looks at nursing through history and its role today.

Created by Peter Walker and Luxmuralis, the projections are accompanied by specially composed music by David Harper and poetry recorded by Oscar-winning actor, Eddie Redmayne.
