Queen’s Baton Relay finale – Coventry Cathedral

19th July 2022

Interactive laser show from Coventry Cathedral ruins this week for the Queen’s Baton Relay finale ahead of the start of the Commonwealth Games  

Laser beams will send a message of peace and reconciliation from Coventry Cathedral and the Cathedral Ruins in sky blue and neon this week in an interactive laser show to mark the Queen’s Baton Relay finale, part of this year’s Commonwealth Games.

Laser Light City by BAFTA award-winning artist Seb Lee-Delisle will take place at the cathedral for three nights from Thursday (21 July).

As well as the sound and light show, visitors can also control four super bright laser beams positioned on the Coventry Cathedral’s tower using their own phones to create their own individual installations above the city.

Bright lasers will be installed around the walls inside the Cathedral ruins, criss-crossing overhead and filling the space with light and sound. The shapes and architectural features of the cathedral will be picked out in neon laser light that moves from space to space.

Laser Light City has been commissioned to commemorate the arrival of the Queen’s Baton in Coventry on Thursday as it travels through the West Midlands this week, including a pass-by Lichfield Cathedral, on its way to Birmingham for the opening ceremony for the Games which open on July 28 until August 8.

This project has been commissioned by Coventry City Council. © 2022 Laser Light City
