York Minster Northern Lights

About

Tickets on sale here

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 with 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 protect the cathedral’s medieval stained glass.

Funds from the events 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. Learn more about the project here.

Event times and prices:

There will be two showings each evening at 7pm and 9pm (6pm and 8pm on Sunday 27 October), with doors opening 45 minutes beforehand. The experience will last approximately 30 minutes.

Tickets are £6 in advance or £8 on the door.

The Chapter of York is selling tickets for this event in its capacity as an agent for the York Minster Fund.
