Liverpool Cathedral invites families to come along this half term for a series of free events themed around the popular Peace Doves art installation.
Created by renowned sculptor and artist Peter Walker, features over 18,000 paper doves suspended from the roof of the Cathedral, accompanied by a soundscape from composer David Harper.
During the half term holiday, from Tuesday 1st June to Thursday 3rd June, the Cathedral is running free 45-minute sessions featuring bird themed craft activities and the opportunity to view the Peace Doves.
All sessions must be pre-booked and due to current Covid restrictions, only a maximum of 6 people (including children), two households or support bubbles are allowed per table.
As well as Peace Doves, visitors to the Cathedral will also be able to view the return of the popular Angel Wings moving light projection, created by Luxmuralis. Visitors can take photos and videos in front of the shoulder height, angel wings which pulsate and change colour to a curated soundtrack.
Another new, interactive art installation also going on display is Peace to Ourselves. Visitors will be asked to place a button inside the shape of a giant dove and take a moment to contemplate the past year and remember those who have lost their lives.
Peace Doves runs until August 31st, 2021, with a series of further special events, including talks, music, yoga and the chance to dine under the doves.
There are also a series of Quiet Hours for those who might find crowds daunting, for example, someone who has an autism spectrum condition or sensory processing differences. Due to COVID regulations, bookings must be made in advance to view the installation.
