See Luke Jerram’s seven metre sculpture of Earth, when Gaia comes to Gloucester Cathedral this October 2020.

Gloucester Cathedral is playing host to a spectacular new installation, Gaia by Luke Jerram, this October 2020.

The seven-metre sculpture of Earth, featuring highly detailed NASA imagery, will take up residence in the cathedral nave from Tuesday 13 October to Sunday 1 November 2020, offering visitors the chance to get a glimpse of our planet like never before.

Alongside daytime viewings, there will also be an opportunity to see Gaia after dark, in a series of strictly limited evening viewings.

Created by Bristol-based artist Luke Jerram, Gaia will be his second installation at the cathedral, following the hugely popular Museum of the Moon at Gloucester Cathedral in 2019. He is also behind Of Earth and Sky, Gloucester’s city wide art trail.

As well as the spectacular sculpture, Gaia will be accompanied by an immersive soundscape by BAFTA-award winning composer Dan Jones. Ecclesiastical Insurance are the event partners.

Tickets for Gaia will be available from 9.30am on Monday 28 September 2020 and will be limited to facilitate social distancing.
