By The Guide Liverpool

Liverpool Cathedral has lit up in spectacular style for Christmas 2022 and you have until Friday 9 December to experience the Light Before Christmas.

‘The Light Before Christmas has launched at Liverpool Cathedral bringing with it a stunning display of lights, Projections and sounds.

Liverpool Cathedral has lit up for Christmas with an immersive experience, which will take visitors on an incredible journey through the Nativity story.

‘The Light Before Christmas: The Angels Are Coming!’ invites families to enjoy the most wonderful time of year through son et lumière as the magnificent Gothic interior of the iconic building becomes a canvas for a sequence of dazzling light and sound artworks.

A contemporary twist on the opening scenes of the Nativity, the captivating yuletide experience will see angels guide the way through a special display of twinkling lights, mesmerising projections and beautiful music, inspired by the first Christmas.

As extraordinary sights and sounds fill the vast space inside Liverpool Cathedral, visitors will have the chance to immerse themselves in one of the greatest stories ever told in preparation for their own Christmas celebrations.

The awe-inspiring festive experience is the work of the award-wining artistic collaboration, Luxmuralis, the same team who brought the sell-out installation,Space, The Universe and Everything’, to Liverpool Cathedral earlier this year.

Peter Walker, Artistic Director of Luxmuralis, said: 

“It really is going to be an unforgettable experience as stunning light and sound artworks depict the remarkable story of how Christmas began, all in the majestic surroundings of Liverpool Cathedral. Following the phenomenal success of ‘Space, The Universe and Everything’, we’re delighted to be returning to Liverpool Cathedral with ‘The Light Before Christmas: The Angels Are Coming!’, which will give visitors of all ages a chance to enjoy the festive season in a modern and artistic way.”

The Dean of Liverpool, The Very Revd Dr Sue Jones, said:

“The artists behind Luxmuralis are renowned for creating the most spectacular immersive experiences, you may remember ‘Space, The Universe and Everything’, which was incredibly well received by visitors to Liverpool Cathedral.

‘The Light Before Christmas: The Angels Are Coming!’ looks set to be just as popular as we invite people to lose themselves in the wonderful story of Christmas and the Nativity. The stunning festive light and sound installation forms a key part of the Christmas celebrations at Liverpool Cathedral, providing a perfect opportunity for different generations to join together for reflection. I’m sure visitors will find the experience very moving as we are reminded of the true meaning of Christmas.”

‘The Light Before Christmas: The Angels Are Coming!’ is part of a two-year programme of events, exhibitions and artworks leading up to Liverpool Cathedral’s 100th anniversary, which falls in 2024.
