Gloucester Cathedral has a brand-new attraction this March 2022, as Luma the giant illuminated snail pays a visit to Cathedral Green.
As part of the Gloucester Bright Nights programme, the unmissable art installation features an eight-metre-long inflatable snail lit up in a rainbow of colours – and while her arrival was slightly delayed by Storm Eunice, visitors will finally be able to see her from 5.30pm to 9pm on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 March 2022.
Technically a robot, Luma is described by organisers as ‘a joyful and hopeful work which champions both nature and technology’ that ‘reimagines what robots can be for.’
The Gloucester Bright Nights public art programme also features Windows Through Time – an installation of floating window light installations on Westgate Street which will be in place from Thursday 3 and Sunday 6 March 2022.
Luma can be seen on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 March 2022 from 5.30pm to 9pm, with visitors encouraged to come after dark if they can, to see her at her best. She’s free to visit too, with no need to book tickets in advance!
