Artist Peter walker says: “We are all responsible for this small planet that we started to explore in the 1960’s, Climate Change is part of the narrative. The artwork is about reflecting inwards as much as it is about reflecting outwards, and about how we take care of our small piece of the Universe.”
The entire experience lasts approximately 50-60 minutes
NB: There is fast moving lighting and loud music throughout and movement between areas of light and dark. Therefore this event is not suitable for people who suffer from epilepsy or any condition triggered by light or loud sounds.

‘Space Voyage’ is a spectacular immersive journey for people to walk through and explore the space of the Cathedral in a new light, the artwork asks visitors to look out into space and think about what humans have achieved in our place in the world.
