City of Lights show set to be amazing spectacular


A stunning sound and light installation at Carlisle’s 900 year old Cathedral will be the centrepiece for a spectacular new ‘City of Lights’ event in England’s Great Border City this month.

As well as seeing an array of historic buildings and local landmarks illuminated with brightly coloured lights and projections over four days (12-15 February 2020), Carlisle will be the first location in Northern England to host ‘The Great Exhibition – SPACE: God, the Universe and Everything,’ created by the award-winning Luxmuralis artistic collaboration.

The stunning light and spectacle will illuminate the interior of the ancient building, allowing visitors to walk among the stars, discover planets and explore to the edge of the Milky Way and back.

It will be the first time this immersive exhibition has been seen in the North of England, after capturing the public’s imagination when it reanimated the architecture of Lichfield Cathedral and St Albans Cathedral.

Carlisle’s wider four-day ‘City of Lights’ event will also include a series of eye-catching light displays and projections throughout the historic city centre, including The Citadel – Carlisle’s most iconic set of buildings, originally built on the orders of Henry VIII in 1542.

The event is being supported by Carlisle City Council and Cumbria County Council, alongside a range of partners including Story Contracting and the Railway Heritage Trust.

The project, a partnership between Carlisle City Council and Cumbria County Council alongside a range of local partners (including Story Contracting and the Railway Heritage Trust), will be delivered under the ‘Love Carlisle’ brand. The aim of Love Carlisle is to organise and promote events, opportunities and activities that raise the profile of Carlisle and celebrate the variety of cultural and creative talent in the city.

The centre-piece of the City of Lights event will be a stunning visual spectacle in Carlisle Cathedral on the 12th, 13th and 14th of February. The Cathedral will host ‘The Great Exhibition – SPACE: God, the Universe and Everything,’ inspired by the 1969 Moon landings. Created by the award-winning Luxmuralis artistic collaboration, it will take people on a walking journey through the Cathedral, revealing the universe, galaxies, space, creation, and light through a variety of sound and light installations that will transform the internal space of the Cathedral.

Tickets to all sessions, priced at £5 for adults and £4 for children aged 5-16, are available in advance from the Carlisle Tourist Information Centre (01228 598596) or online from Skiddle at
