About

Before lockdown, visitors to the Cathedral, along with local school children and community groups were invited to write messages of peace, hope and love onto thousands of paper doves.

Liverpool Cathedral will be hosting a new and exciting art project with internationally-renowned sculptor and artist Peter Walker. ‘Peace Doves’ is a mass participation art project culminating in the creation of a beautiful large-scale art installation that will hang inside the Cathedral.

The installation, which is accompanied by a soundscape from composer David Harper, was originally scheduled to open last May but was postponed due to the pandemic.

As well as Peace Doves, visitors to the cathedral will also be able to view the return of the popular Angel Wings moving light projection, created by Luxmuralis.

Visitors can take photos and videos in front of the shoulder height, angel wings that pulsate and change colour to a curated soundtrack.

Another new, interactive art installation also going on display is Peace to Ourselves. Visitors will be asked to place a button inside the shape of a giant dove and take a moment to contemplate the past year and remember those who have lost their lives.

You don't need to book a ticket for Peace Doves please visit the Liverpool Cathedral for opening times.
