August at Liverpool Cathedral


Join us in being 'All Together' this August at Liverpool Cathedral.

Are you looking for things to do this Summer? Look no further because Liverpool Cathedral has lots going on this August...

From eating at our Welsford Bistro to a trip up the tower, we have lots of exciting news and events to tell you about, including lots to do during the holidays with kids!


IDENTITY: We Are All Together

This is a thought-provoking art installation by artist Peter Walker, exploring the concept of identity and how we are all connected. This is Liverpool Cathedral’s largest installation to date!

‘IDENTITY’ introduces seven illuminated columns, suspended over the Well. Each column is lit, with individual strips of light representing the double helix of DNA and demonstrating the unique make up of each person. Together, the seven columns represent our distinct differences, gathered in union.   

Whilst the reference to DNA demonstrates the uniqueness of us all, the columns are wrapped in over 3000 individual portraits, all photographed as part of Peter Walker’s 2022 installation ‘Being Human’, presented together as a collective. So if you joined us last summer and attended the photo booth... keep an eye out!
