Gaia is suspended in the nave and forms a key part of Gloucester Cathedral’s Beacon of Hope campaign which aims to support the recovery of the city and county following the Covid-19 pandemic with a programme of collaborative cultural activities. Gaia is brought to the Cathedral thanks to Ecclesiastical Insurance and is here until 1 November.

The Dean of Gloucester, the Very Rev Stephen Lake, Dean of Gloucester said:

“Everyone involved has worked incredibly hard to make Gaia a reality, giving us all something exciting to look forward to during this unprecedented time and aiding the City’s cultural recovery.”

Artist, Luke Jerram said:

“It’s an honour to present my work in Gloucester Cathedral again and wonderful that we’ve been able to programme it to coincide with my poetry installation ‘Of Earth and Sky’ which will be installed across the city at the same time.”

Chris Pitt, Head of Responsible Business at Ecclesiastical, said:
“We are pleased to be able to sponsor the installation of Gaia as part of our commitment to the city of Gloucester and supporting the Cathedral’s Beacon of Hope campaign.
“We’re proud be involved in bringing this incredible installation into the stunning setting of the Cathedral, which I am sure will attract and delight visitors from the city and beyond.”
