Peter is the artist behind Peace Doves which attracted more than 150,000 visitors to the cathedral.

What’s been said

Sculptor Peter Walker said: “The idea really is that the minute people come in the cathedral, they will be seen in a completely different light to how they have seen it before.

“We've got architectural lighting, we've got multiple songs and a couple of art installations.

“So we take people on a little bit of a journey perhaps they've not taken before; they go in between art installations with loud music - the music really sets the atmosphere.

“So you can get different experiences as you walk all through these hidden parts of the installation, which takes you from west to east, all the way around the back of the cathedral.”

Peter added: “It's been a tough couple of years, hasn't it?

“So I hope people come and feel uplifted afterwards. If they can just take an hour out from everything that is going on at the moment to come to this beautiful building, walk through the experience.

“If people leave with a smile on their face and feeling a bit of happiness and a bit of joy after everything we've been through, then I think we've done our job.”
