About

An immersive art experience, known as ‘Space, The Universe and Everything’, is set to transform the inside of Liverpool Cathedral with an extraordinary display of lights, projections and sound, which will see visitors surrounded by the awe-inspiring wonders of the universe as they walk through the building’s vast splendour.

The breathtaking installation will come to life after dark as the stunning Gothic architecture of Liverpool Cathedral becomes a canvas for an incredible exploration of space and the universe, with a spectacular son-et-lumière performance taking place every evening between Friday 18 – Sunday 27 February 2022.

Combining the dazzling projections of sculptor, Peter Walker, with the beautiful atmospheric sounds of composer, David Harper, ‘Space, The Universe and Everything’ is the work of award-winning artistic collaboration, Luxmuralis, the team behind ‘Angel Wings’ and ‘Peace Doves’ at Liverpool Cathedral.

Speaking on returning to Liverpool Cathedral with a powerful new immersive art installation, Peter Walker, Artistic Director of Luxmuralis, said: “We’re incredibly excited about bringing ‘Space, The Universe and Everything’ to such a remarkable building. Liverpool Cathedral has an amphitheatre of space about it and to fill such a vast area of Gothic architecture with galaxies and the universe is going to be absolutely phenomenal.

“Mankind has only scratched the surface of space discovery and this artwork explores the amazing wonders of the universe, capturing the excitement of what the next steps might be as we see far away galaxies emerge before us. ‘Space, The Universe and Everything’ gives visitors the chance to lose themselves in space and time as we take them from the first step on the moon to the edge of the universe and back again in just one night. It really will be an unforgettable experience.”

The Dean of Liverpool, The Very Revd Dr Sue Jones, said: “Liverpool Cathedral is well known for hosting contemporary artworks and we’re thrilled to welcome back Luxmuralis with our most ambitious installation yet. ‘Space, The Universe and Everything’ is set to be a real highlight on the city’s cultural events’ calendar in 2022 and it’s going to be truly magnificent to see Liverpool Cathedral’s stunning architecture come alive with light and sound.

“As the largest cathedral in the UK and one of the biggest in the world, just being inside the building at night is an incredible experience so flooding the space with the wonders of the universe will be simply spectacular. I hope people will enjoy the immersive installation and encounter Liverpool Cathedral in all its architectural splendour as we offer a chance to reflect and find a sense of serenity in the beauty of creation.”

‘Space, The Universe and Everything’ runs from Friday 18 - Sunday 27 February with shows starting every 15 minutes between 6 pm - 8 pm. Tickets for the immersive art experience, which lasts around 40 minutes, must be booked in advance at Ticket Quarter.
