After winning the ‘What’s On Readers Award’ for ‘Best Event in Staffordshire’ twice over, the artistic collaboration Luxmuralis return to Lichfield Cathedral offering a new spectacular light and sound experience for all the family.

As well as all new projections, the illuminations will include bespoke music from Luxmuralis composer David Harper. The ticket only event will include access to the Close with multiple projections around the Cathedral, the spectacular projection on the front of the Cathedral, a unique view of the 20,000 Dove installation, as well as readings of the nativity and a trip through the enchanting Christmas tree festival.

Adrian Dorber, Dean of Lichfield said “I am delighted to welcome back the illuminations and the thousands of people this brings to the Cathedral and city. This annual event has become a curtain-raiser for families celebrating Christmas. We offer a sincere welcome and a way of reflecting on the joy and hope of the season. The Illuminations continue our theme of the year ‘Imagine Peace’, with Christmas and the birth of the Prince of Peace, a fitting way to end the year.”

Peter Walker, Artist in Residence and lead artist of the creative collaboration Luxmuralis notes “Every year we try and bring something new to the illuminations, and for 2018 it is bigger and better. It is fantastic that this has become a tradition to many families in the area and that people now visit the Cathedral illuminated from around the country.”

Tickets sell fast and are now on sale for the following dates 17th 18th 20th 21st and 22nd December.

Entry is ticket only and available every 15 minute from 6.30pm. Ticket times are for entry to the event and allow visitors time to enjoy the illuminations at their own pace.
