See Bristol’s historic cathedral in a brand new light this autumn. Luxmuralis returns with an all-new immersive light and sound display that will transform Bristol Cathedral's interior into a colourful odyssey, celebrating the elements of nature.

Last year's Luxmuralis drew 13,500 attendees, and this new show, running for just six nights from Monday 30 October until Saturday 4 November, will feature hand-drawn projections accompanied by a music score that has been composed exclusively for the event.

A dazzling display of light

The multi-sensory experience will transform the familiar walls of the cathedral into a virtual, abstract painting. Prepare to be immersed in underwater worlds, volcanic fires, and cloudy peaks- all projected onto the stunning medieval architectural features of Bristol Cathedral.

Luxmuralis ‘Force of Nature: The Elements’ is an artistic collaboration by acclaimed sculptor Peter Walker and composer David Harper, and brings together a team of diverse artists with various backgrounds and artistic talents, paying homage to fire, air, water and earth.

About the show

The light and sound show lasts between 45-60 minutes, but visitors are welcome to enjoy the show at their own pace. The show is just as much about being introspective and thoughtful as it is about exploring the elements of our Earth and appreciating the history and architecture of the cathedral.

A bar will be available during the show and run by local producer Espensen Spirit, who will be stocking mulled spirits, wine, nature-inspired cocktails/mocktails, local beers and soft drinks. 

Due to the nature of the show, with loud music and fast-moving projections, the experience may not be suitable for people who suffer from migraines, epilepsy, or sensory processing disorders.

Bristol Cathedral will be hosting screenings for those with auditory sensitivities. The volume will be turned down significantly 17:30-18:30 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, and 17:00-18:00 on Saturday for a show with reduced volume. Children's ear defenders will also be available to borrow on a first come first served basis.

Tickets are available through Yuup, a local experiences marketplace that is home to hundreds of things to do, workshops, and events held in and around Bristol by passionate local people.

Tickets start at £6.99, with concession, child, and carer tickets available.
