STAR OF BETHLEHEM

Published: 30 Oct 2017   updated: 13 Nov 2017

Throughout December and January we invite you to come and experience an eye catching light display inspired by the Star of Bethlehem.

The actual design is made up of a transparent screen which projects an abstract image and using latest technology and laser beams, creates the impression of a magnificent Star hovering above the Nave of the Cathedral. Visitors will be able to engage with the installation by controlling the shape and colour of the Star via an iPad at ground level.

The modern day work of art was created by artist Jayson Haebich and will be in situ from 28 November for eight weeks. This is only the second time this unique installation has been on public display in the UK.

(This installation was kindly sponsored by The Friends of Ely Cathedral)
