Angels come to Liverpool Cathedral this Christmas

Angels are bringing glad tidings at Liverpool Cathedral this Christmas in a special new interactive light installation.

Angel Wings has been created by Luxmuralis – a collaboration between artist Peter Walker, whose Peace Doves sculpture was due to take over the Well of the cathedral in May, and composer David Harper.

The pair, who are known for producing large-scale light and sound shows, have now developed a type of smaller-scale light graffiti called Light Tags.

Angel Wings, specially designed for Liverpool Cathedral, is a shoulder-height moving light projection sees the giant wings pulse and change colour to a curated soundtrack.

Visitors can have photographs of themselves and their loved ones with the Angel Wings.

Liverpool Cathedral is usually thronged with people over December, with the landmark playing host to major carol concerts as well as holding a full programme of its own Christmas services.

The coronavirus crisis has changed all that in 2020.

But there are still chances to enjoy the Christmas spirit. People can enjoy Coffee, Cakes and Carols with short performances by the Cathedral Choral Scholars. The sessions take place from 1.30-2.40 on December 8, 10, 15 and December 17.

And a number of services are also being held.

They include a traditional Nativity Service this Sunday, December 6 at 3pm, a Christmas Organ Gala on Tuesday, December 8 at 7pm, the Lighting of the Tree and Blessing of the Crib on Sunday, December 15 at 3pm, and the Holly Bough Carol Service on December 19 at 7pm and December 20 at 3pm and 7pm.

There will also be Carols on Christmas Eve at 1pm and 3.30pm and the First Eucharist at Christmas at 11.30pm on December 24, as well as the Festival Eucharist for Christmas Day.

Visitors numbers are being controlled for social distancing and people must book in advance HERE
