The Light Before Christmas: The Manger, is an immersive experience that will take visitors on an incredible journey through the Nativity story, celebrating the true magic of Christmas.
After the huge success of last year’s event, Luxmuralis are returning to Liverpool Cathedral for Christmas 2023. This year, Peter Walker is returning with Light Before Christmas: The Manger, the second of The Light Before Christmas series.
The cathedral’s historic architecture will become a backdrop for the sensory experience, which will take guests on a journey that brings the nativity story to life.
The large-scale Son et Lumiere project will see lights and sound filling the majestic building, including stunning Christmas related images that will be projected onto the front elevation and the interior walls. Illuminations will guide visitors into the building to follow the story, while encouraging both young and old to look up and enjoy the architectural splendour of the building.
During that time, the Wexford Bistro within the cathedral will be open for festive food and drinks so visitors can enjoy an evening meal before or after viewing the display. The cathedral shop will also have a special stall selling related goodies.
The Light Before Christmas: The Manger is part of a two-year programme of events, exhibitions and artworks leading up to Liverpool Cathedral’s 100th anniversary in 2024.
