Each Christmas, Liverpool Cathedral traditionally welcomes many visitors with trips to Cathedral playing a big part in many family’s festive preparations.

This year, the Cathedral team have worked hard to make visitor experience really enjoyable, but above all, as safe as possible. Read more about what measures we have introduced to keep everybody safe on our website.

Angel Wings

Embrace the feeling of flight when you stand between Angel Wings in the Cathedral’s Derby Transept. Created by Luxmuralis, Angel Wings is a moving light projection artwork. At shoulder height, the Angel Wings’ feathers pulsate and change colour to a curated soundtrack.

An award-winning artistic collaboration, between Peter Walker sculptor, and composer David Harper, Luxmuralis is known for producing large-scale light and sound shows. They have now created an art form called Light Tags. It’s a type of light graffiti, projecting small light artworks on walls and buildings.

Specially designed for Liverpool Cathedral, Angel Wings is the first version of a Light Tag which Luxmuralis have created as an installation. You can come along to Liverpool Cathedral to take photos of yourself and your loved ones with Angel Wings for free during our opening hours but you must book your visit through Eventbrite. 

Festive Food and Drink

During our visiting opening hours savour sumptuous snacks from our foodie specialists the Mezz in the Well. Book your visit through Eventbrite.
