The Light Before Christmas arrives at Liverpool Cathedral


A new festive light and sound show has arrived at Liverpool Cathedral.

This unforgettable experience will guide visitors through a visual representation of the first Christmas, as the nativity story is brought to life through a series of projections and specially composed music.

This unique experience has been brought to the Cathedral by Luxmuralis, an artistic collaboration renowned for creating extraordinary immersive art installations, including the sell-out Space, The Universe and Everything’, which came to the Cathedral earlier this year.  

Peter Walker, Artistic Director of Luxmuralis, said: “It’s a huge honour to be bringing ‘The Light Before Christmas: The Angels Are Coming!’ to Liverpool Cathedral and we’re incredibly excited about lighting up the iconic building’s stunning Gothic architecture during the Advent season.”
“We’re really looking forward to seeing visitors of all ages lose themselves in the kaleidoscopic projections and atmospheric music, which fuse together the traditional Nativity story with present day celebrations, as we depict Christmas in a modern and artistic way.”
The Dean of Liverpool, The Very Revd Dr Sue Jones, said: “Advent is such a wonderful time. We’re delighted to be working with Luxmuralis to bring a message of peace, joy and hope to the city with ‘The Light Before Christmas: The Angels Are Coming!’. I'm sure visitors will find a sense of serenity in this a truly uplifting experience, which offers a perfect opportunity for families, friends and members of the community to come together for reflection as we are reminded of the real meaning of Christmas.”

The show runs from 2-9 December.Tickets for the Light Before Christmas: The Angels are Coming can be purchased here.
