The light and sound creations of artistic duo, Luxmuralis are returning for a third year to Durham Cathedral with Space this autumn.

Luxmuralis are returning to Durham Cathedral

Tickets went on sale earlier this month and the immersive light show will run from Wednesday 9 to Sunday 13 October.

Visitors will be immersed in light projections of galaxies and see original footage of a rocket launch projected throughout Durham Cathedral accompanied by a unique soundscape. There will also be the opportunity to reflect on the experience and light a candle in the Galilee Chapel.

Andrew Usher, Chief Officer: Visitor Experience and Enterprise at Durham Cathedral said:

“It is a joy to welcome the artists behind Luxmuralis back to Durham Cathedral again. Following the success of last year, we are releasing the tickets early so people can plan for their visit in October. We had a fantastic response to the artwork in the previous years and we urge people to get their tickets early to avoid any disappointment. With a different show, we can’t wait to see what Space brings to the cathedral this autumn.”

Since 2022 Durham Cathedral has hosted immersive light shows by Luxmuralis which have attracted thousands of visitors including Life which saw visitors journey through earth, sea and sky, followed a year later in 2023 by Science which explored elements, DNA, and the greatest scientists in history.

The Dean of Durham, The Very Revd Dr Philip Plyming said:

“We are delighted to be hosting Space by Luxmuralis at Durham Cathedral.  Christians believe that the heavens tell the glory of God, and there can be no better place than Durham Cathedral to help us wonder at stars and space and reflect on our place within the cosmos.”

Created by the artistic collaboration Luxmuralis. Their works have been touring cathedrals in England for several years.
