Following the success of last year’s Luxmuralis, the spectacular light show returns to Bristol Cathedral with a new light show: Luxmuralis: Force of Nature.

Join Bristol Cathedral for a dazzling journey of light and sound as the Cathedral architecture turns into a virtual canvas for the forces of nature and the elements.

Witness the flaming power of volcanoes as an exploration of 'Fire', become immersed in the sky and environment as a conveyance of 'Air', watch as the Earth evolves through dramatic historic and artistic imagery and take in the immensity of the oceans and storms, while sharing stories linked to 'Water'.

The accompanying bespoke soundtrack ensures you are fully immersed in an awe-inspiring world of natural elements as you enjoy at your own pace.


A bar will be available inside the Cathedral. The bar will be run by Espensen Spirit, stocking mulled spirits, wine, nature-inspired cocktails/mocktails, local beers and soft drinks. There is a Challenge 25 policy so bring ID.

Sound Levels

In order to create an immersive show, this experience is very loud and therefore may not be suitable for anyone with noise sensitivities.

The volume will be turned down significantly 5.30-6.30 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, and 5.00-6.00 on Saturday.

This means that if you book the 6.00 slot on Wednesday and stay for an hour, the first half of your experience will be at reduced volume and the second half will be at full volume.

Children's ear defenders are available to borrow on a first come first served basis. Please ask a member of staff in a high vis jacket when you arrive.

Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please ensure there is a ratio of no more than four children to one adult in your group


Please note that there are fast-moving light projections and loud music throughout this experience. If you suffer from epilepsy or any other condition triggered by light and sound, this event may not be suitable for you.
