Spectacular Space Voyage is coming to Southwell Minster
An opportunity to ponder our relationship with the planet Earth and beyond is explored in a fantastic sound and light experience.
Installations of sound and light art that will take you on a journey through space, see galaxies emerge above you and to explore humanities ambition to adventure beyond.
The audience takes an immersive journey through the cathedral whilst beautiful space-themed projections highlight the stunning architecture of Southwell Minster — all set to bespoke music.
Just as Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins stated: “We are so tiny in the system of things”
Artist Peter Walker said: “We are all responsible for this small planet that we started tovexplore in the 1960’s, Climate Change is part of the narrative. The artwork is about reflectingvinwards as much as it is about reflecting outwards, and about how we take care of our small piece of the universe.”
Glenn Formoy, head of marketing and events at Southwell Minster said: "‘Space Voyage’ is a spectacular immersive journey for people to walk through and explore the space of the cathedral in a new light, the artwork asks visitors to look out into space and think about what humans have achieved in our place in the world and we can’t wait to share this incredible installation with the public.
"We know how popular the theme of space is with adults and children alike and when Space Voyage visited Rochester Cathedral last year, every single ticket sold out — so don’t miss out.
Space Voyage runs at Southwell Minster from September 12-16, 2022, and lasts approximately 45-60 minutes. Ticket-only.
