A three-day spectacular light show is attracting thousands to Peterborough Cathedral.
The sound and light show on the west front and in the nave of the cathedral was created by the artists of Luxmuralis and suitable for all ages.
The cathedral is advising that anyone wishing to attend to please book tickets in advance.
The cathedral says the stunning light display is timed to coincide with the start of the Advent season.
“It captures the imagination of all the family and point towards Christmas.,” said a cathedral spokesperson.
“It begins outside with a light art projection onto the three great porticos of the Cathedral, set to music composed by David Harper.
“The audience then enter the cathedral to see the interior full of light projections with accompanying sound.”
