Take a journey to the moon and stars this autumn with a spectacular space themed son-et-lumiere at St Albans Cathedral in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing.

Suitable for all ages, this stunning cosmic installation sees the outside of the Cathedral transformed into a visual journey to the edge of the Milky Way and back. The longest nave in England will become an ethereal galaxy as light and music fill the huge, ancient spaces.  And a special installation to commemorate the Moon Landing uses NASA imagery of the lunar surface allowing you to walk on the moon and take your very own ‘One Small Step’.

An unmissable experience which will dazzle your eyes and expand your horizons to infinity

- The Very Rev'd Dr Jeffrey John, Dean of St Albans

Space Voyage is produced by Artistic Collaboration Luxmuralis, creators of Poppy Fields, experienced by over 10,000 visitors at St Albans Cathedral in October 2018 commemorating the centenary of the end of World War One. The installation forms the centre piece of a wider Space themed events programme at the Cathedral throughout October and November, including talks, music and children’s space themed trails
