Lights Out

2 February - 27 February

Created by young people, in collaboration with Squidsoup and The Music Works, Lights Out is a powerful new light installation that's being hosted in the Lady Chapel during February.

Gloucestershire-based charity, The Music Works, has been working with young people from the local community to create powerful new audio content in response to The Knife Angel.

 In collaboration with artists at Squidsoup, young people have taken part in a series of workshops to produce a small-scale, intimate light and sound installation. The work, called ‘Lights Out’, features the voices and sounds of local young people interested in social change, whose lives have been affected by the issues raised by the Knife Angel sculpture.

No tickets are required to come and see it. The installation will be available to view between the following times:

10.30am-4pm on Monday-Friday

10.30am-3pm on Saturday

12noon-2pm on Sunday
