Winchester Cathedral to recreate spire as a light sculpture
11:32am Wednesday 26th September 2012 in News
Winchester Cathedral is to promote a forthcoming sound and light show by recreating its long-lost spire.
From Monday October 1 to October 28 the mini-spire will shine from the top of the tower. The light sculpture recalls the spire that stood until 1107 before it fell down.
It will help promote the Winchester: Chronicles of Light show which runs from October 12-28.
The show explores over a thousand years of history through the characters and events that have made Winchester Cathedral a national treasure. As well as the voices of numerous stars some 45 actors will provide live action.
