Light and Sound – Guildford Cathedral 60th

31st January 2022

Light and sound show commissioned to mark Guildford Cathedral’s 60th anniversary.

The story of Guildford Cathedral will be told in light and sound to mark the end of their 60th anniversary celebrations.

Artistic collaboration, Luxmuralis, have created a special seven-minute show to tell the cathedral’s unique story that will be seen for the first time as part of the immersive sound and light show, Space and Life that will transform the interior of the cathedral, taking visitors on a journey through space, light and time and asking them to contemplate and reflect on planet earth.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone to the spectacular illuminations Space and Life. You will feel totally immersed in this installation as the Cathedral is bathed in light and sound.

“Visitors can come on a journey with us through Space and Life and at the end of the show there is a bespoke section celebrating our 60th anniversary,’ she added.
