Over the last year, The Poetry Society has been working on Historic England’s project Where Light Falls – a spectacular combination of light, history and poetry. A poem written by Jane Commane, exploring the war time history of Coventry Cathedral, and written with participants from local schools and community groups, will be projected on to the walls of the cathedral in a free light show.
Using the Cathedral as a canvas, leading creatives Double Take Projections will project powerful poetry, visuals and photography to tell the story of the Cathedral, the city and its people.
It’s a tale of destruction, recovery and resilience: from the medieval period — when culture, learning and trade flourished — through the destruction of the old cathedral during the Blitz, finishing with peace, reconciliation and the building of a modern city.
