This Friday Newcastle Cathedral will launch their ‘The Stars Come Out At Night’ event, promising an enchanting sound and light installation accompanied by a bespoke atmospheric soundtrack by composer Oliver Vibrans.

The artwork had previously appeared at Lumiere Festival in Durham, featuring a large rotating spectacle of beautiful star patterns and stunning landscape.

This wonderful starry landscape creates a wonderful Winter display, perfect to evoke the peacefulness we find as we make our way through Advent.

Lyndsey Stephenson, a member of the Stellar Projects team that created the artwork, said: “Our longstanding fascination with the stars and the cosmos led us to create the installation.

“The installation creates a mesmerising environment where the audience can immerse themselves in the soothing beauty of the stars.”

Times for the event are:

Friday 17 December 5pm-8pm

Saturday 18 December 10am-7pm

Sunday 19 December 4pm-8pm
