See York Minster in a new light this autumn as the awe-inspiring Northern Lights returns by popular demand.

The sound and light installation, which debuted to sell-out audiences in June 2018, will transform the cathedral’s cavernous Nave, immersing viewers in images and audio inspired by the medieval Minster’s stained glass and stone.

Visitors will have the chance to explore the empty Nave after dark before the installation illuminates the space, spanning the full length of the ceiling and West End and surrounding the listener with soundscapes and music.

Designed by renowned projectionist Ross Ashton and sound artist Karen Monid, and featuring recordings from the York Minster Choir, the events have been organised to raise funds to restore the cathedral’s medieval stained glass.

Every ticket sold will support the Minster’s 20-year campaign to ensure all its 128 windows, which hold the largest collection of medieval stained glass in the country, have external glazing to protect them from the elements.
