A multi-sensory experience will take people on a journey through words and sound at Bradford Cathedral.

Visitors will get the chance to reflect and hear prayers, poetry, stories, hymns and music of former times.

Described as an evening pilgrimage, Son et Lumière will tell the story of Bradford and its cathedral.

Christians have worshipped in the sacred space for 1,400 years. 

It will take place on Saturday, February 3, from 6.30pm.

Maggie Myers, Bradford Cathedral’s director of education and visitors, said: “We introduced this historical pilgrimage around the building in February 2020, just before we closed due to Covid, and it was very popular.

“Not only is there the opportunity to travel through the building at night and in semi-darkness, but there is also beautiful music - some of it at a distance - and prayers, poems and information about the Cathedral and its role in Bradford in former times. It is a unique experience and we are really happy to be bringing it back for new audiences."

Graham Thorpe, Bradford Cathedral’s director of music, added: “The music chosen spans almost 1000 years."
