Chronicles of Light at Winchester Cathedral
3 July 2012
DAME JUDI DENCH, Alan Titchmarsh and Hugh Dennis are amongst those to star in Winchester Cathedral’s Chronicles of Light performance this October.
This 90-minute star-studded performance will offer the audience an opportunity to experience the Cathedral in amazing array of light and sounds, as a spellbound audience are transported through the many different stories of the Cathedral, from King Alfred to Jane Austen.
These three household names are just a few of the celebrities who will be taking part in the Chronicles of Light, a dazzling show put on in aid of raising money for a new sound and light system for the Cathedral, that will greatly improve the experience for the congregation, visitors and all who attend concerts and major services at the Cathedral.
David Suchet, Bernard Cribbins, Tamsin Greig, Alastair Stewart, Anthony Andrews, Wendy Craig, Finty Williams, John Rhys-Davies and Jon Snow will also be featuring in the exceptional cast for the show.
Tickets for the event which runs from 12 to 28 October are available from £10 upwards with total immersion seats, putting you right in the centre of the action, ranging from £35 to £50.
Winchester Cathedral are also currently seeking their own ‘Chronicles Angels’, supporters who would be willing to provide further assistance to the fundraising project.
Angels will have the unique opportunity to join some of the celebrities at a champagne and canapé reception and will also be thanked in the souvenir programme for making an additional voluntary donation (suggested minimum, £300) alongside purchasing two ‘total immersion’ tickets to the Gala performance of Saturday 20 October.
