Sheffield Cathedral announces three-year schedule

The Cathedral will be transformed in a way it has never been seen before. This will incorporate three major projects each year, during advent, spring and Summer.

The December spectacular sound and light show ‘The Angels are Coming’ will allow visitors to Sheffield to witness the transformation of the facade of Sheffield Cathedral to start Christmas celebrations off for all the family. The interior of the Cathedral will also be home to a magnificent display where visitors will be immersed in a stunning visual experience set to bespoke music created by Artistic Collaboration, ‘Luxmralis’.

The Reverend Canon Keith Farrow said: “Cathedrals have been an attraction for people over many hundreds of years.”

He added: “These amazing buildings hold something special within them in the beauty of the architecture, the hugely interesting history and heritage story they tell of both local and national events and are places of prayer and spirituality.
