This Remembrancetide the award-winning team from Luxmuralis return with, the poignant and reflective light and sound show, Poppy Fields.
6-13 November 2021 | 17:30 onwards
November is traditionally a time for reflection and remembrance and so by popular request, we are bringing back the profound and evocative sound and light exhibition, Poppy Fields, which was originally created by award winning Luxmuralis in 2016, and revisited in 2018 to mark the centenary of end of the First World War.
This all- embracing sound and light show will see poppies cascade down the ceiling, walls and floor of our stunning 900 year old Cathedral, calling us to remember all those who have fought so valiantly for our peace and safety. Accompanying the projections will be specially composed music by David Harper and poetry recorded by Oscar-winning actor, Eddie Redmayne.
Poppy Fields will allow visitors a much-needed opportunity to reflect not only on past and present conflicts, but also the global pandemic which continues to affect us all, as we begin to consider how we might live differently as a result of all that we have lived through.
The 2021 version of Poppy Fields also features the main show from Luxmuralis’ much loved ‘Imagine Peace’. This stunningly beautiful son et lumiere will bring the east end of the Cathedral to life with its poignant message of hope for the future. In addition, the first public showing of a work created in 2020, to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale for International Nurses Day, will be presented in this newly curated version of the event as a tribute to the NHS.
We are grateful to Friel Homes who have sponsored this event.
