About this event

Peace Doves

Our major new installation, Peace Doves is made from thousands of paper doves, with messages of hope, peace and love. The installation is suspended above The Well. This mass participation art project was curated by internationally renowned sculptor and artist Peter Walker with a soundtrack by composer David Harper.

Angel Wings

The popular Angel Wings moving light projection, created by Luxmuralis returns to the Derby Transept. Take photos and videos in front of the shoulder height, angel wings which pulsate and change colour to a curated soundtrack.

Peace to Ourselves

In this interactive installation, place a button inside the shape of a giant dove while taking a moment to contemplate the past year and remember what has been lost over the past year.

Support Us

You can visit us for free but like many other organisations in the city and beyond, we’re facing an uncertain future. We’ve lost nearly all of our income over the past year, so your donations are welcome and especially needed to help keep entry to Liverpool Cathedral free for future visitors. You can donate when you book your visit or by cash or on our portable contactless consoles when you’re in our building. Please give as generously as you can. Find out more about how you can support us on our Donation website pages.
