The Son-et-Lumiere extravaganza has been created by award-winning artistic collaboration Luxmuralis, whose work has been shown in Germany and Italy as well as other cathedrals throughout the UK.

It takes place on the evenings of October 5, 6, and 7 and early booking is advisable as the shows are usually sold out.

Sound and light will be projected on to the architectural features inside the cathedral, the second oldest in England.

Spectators will embark on a journey which takes them walking with the stars on the edge of the universe and back.

It is suitable for all age groups and has attracted rave reviews up and down the country.

The Very Rev Philip Hesketh, the Dean of Rochester Cathedral, said: "We are all really excited about bringing this amazing light show to Rochester and finally being able to welcome people back into the Cathedral.

"This hopefully will see the relaunch of a two-year packed programme of events postponed by Covid."

Space Voyage is the latest in a series of large-scale attractions. In the summer of 2019 the newly-restored nave was transformed into an adventure golf course. In February 2020 the Museum of the Moon drew the cathedral's highest recorded visitor numbers with 120,000 visiting in 22 days.

Tickets need to be pre-booked through the Rochester Cathedral website and timed entry will be in operation.

Online prices are £7 adults, £5 children (aged between six and 18), £20 family ticket (two adults and two children). Youngsters five and under go free, but must have a ticket.
