WINCHESTER Cathedral will be transformed by a royal immersive light and sound show.

The new immersive attraction will feature imagery spanning more than 1,000 years of history.

Crown and Coronation, created by Historic Royal Palaces – the Tower of London charity - in partnership with Luxmuralis, will be at the cathedral from Monday, March 4 to Friday, March 8.

The artistic collaboration between artist Peter Walker and composer David Harper follows the cathedral’s latest spectacle of a giant moon.

The Very Rev Catherine Ogle, Dean of Winchester, said: “I am delighted to welcome this Crown and Coronation-themed immersive light show to Winchester Cathedral. With its own ancient royal heritage, this is an ideal place in which to experience the stunning spectacle spanning 1,000 years of history. This will be a captivating and beautiful experience and I’m looking forward to Crown and Coronations being here from March 4 - 8 2024.”

Charles Farris, public historian for the history of the monarchy at Historic Royal Palaces, said: “The Crown Jewels hold deep religious, historic, and cultural significance, and we are really excited to be bringing this magnificent collection to people around the UK following a historic Coronation year. Crown and Coronation will immerse visitors to Winchester Cathedral in the rich history of the British monarchy, Coronations, and the Crown Jewels.”

Peter Walker, sculptor and artist at Luxmuralis, said: “We are delighted to be working with Historic Royal Palaces on this spectacular light show, which will transform some of the UK’s most remarkable buildings into an articulating and evolving display of historic images, awash with light and accompanied by compositions which chart changes to music over the period.”

The projections and soundscape will sweep through the 14th and 15th century Gothic Nave showing images of the crown jewels projected through detailed footage captured from historic Coronation ceremonies.

The show launched at the Tower of London in November and is now touring famous landmarks and locations across the UK.
