In the Marvellous Moment: a stunning projection onto Birmingham Cathedral

Last Christmas, Birmingham Cathedral was transformed into a large-scale artwork for four evenings. From Wednesday 18th - Saturday 21st December 2013, 4.30-9pm, the building became a huge canvas, and had projections of local people, and their thoughts and feelings beamed onto the historic facade. The work was the first in a programme of celebrations of the Cathedral's 300th anniversary in 2015.

The work was made by artists Geoff Broadway and Andy McKeown, after consultation with local workers, shoppers, passers by and people visiting the Cathedral. It provided a moment of delight, to pause, wonder and consider different views and perspectives. 

The work was made possible by grant funding from the Arts Council England, with support from BranchMartinSpicer, Mailboxes Inc and Amey.

Olympic Service                  

On Saturday 21st July 2012, the cathedral held a service to welcome the American and Jamaican Olympic Teams to Birmingham. The service was a wonderful opportunity and Archbishop Bernard Longley, the Catholic Archbishop of Birmingham, preached on the positive effects of the Games, saying:

"A unique occasion gathers us together at St Philip's Cathedral today, such as most of us are never likely to see again. The City of Birmingham wholeheartedly welcomes our distinguished guests from the Olympic Track and Field Teams of the United States of America and Jamaica.

"At the invitation of the Lord Mayor, and thanks to the hospitality of the Dean and Chapter of the Cathedral, our city's civic and religious leaders are united in thanking our guests for their presence among us. We are also united in thanking God for the extraordinary and uplifting display of peaceful human endeavour and co-operative as well as competitive achievement that the Olympic and Paralympic Games represent".
