Light of Hope Star


Light of Hope Star installation by Peter Walker

See sculptor Peter Walker's stunning steel and neon star installation in the awe-inspiring nave of Exeter Cathedral. Included with standard Cathedral admission fee.

The Light of Hope Star is a 3-metre steel sculpture in the shape of a star, suspended with changing neon lights. The star, a symbol of divine guidance, protection and oneness, was created as a final sculpture for 'The Light of Hope' mass participation project in 2020. The project incorporated seven UK cathedrals (including Exeter), with each sending beams of light up into the night sky as beacons of hope during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Light of Hope Star saw its first installation at Lichfield Cathedral from December 2020 until the end of January 2021. The installation of the star marked the final stage of a three-part project supported by Art Council England.
