Gaia at Tewkesbury Abbey

Tewkesbury

Dates: 2 – 20 FEBRUARY 2024

Venue: Tewkesbury Abbey

Gaia at Tewkesbury Abbey

Tewkesbury Abbey, in partnership with Tewkesbury Culture's Two Rivers Converge Festival, is delighted to to host Gaia; a spectacular touring artwork by renowned UK artist Luke Jerram.
“We’re really excited to be hosting Gaia. We live on a fragile planet facing a climate emergency. I hope that this event will give tens of thousands of people the opportunity to wonder at the beauty of the Earth. Floating in the Abbey this globe offers us a new perspective on our planet and might help us to see it as a sacred place”
Revd Canon Nick Davies, Vicar of Tewkesbury

Internally lit, Gaia comes into its own during the evening when the light is low and there is a more profound sense of what it might be like to see Earth from space. A specially made surround sound composition by BAFTA award winning Composer Dan Jones is played alongside the sculpture. In Greek Mythology Gaia is the personification of the Earth.

Tewkesbury Abbey remains free to all to enter each day 9am - 3pm, and Gaia can be seen during this time too, except 14 February when the Abbey will be closed (click here to check Abbey opening times on the Abbey's website).Gaia comes into its own during the evening when the light is low and there is a more profound sense of what it might be like to see Earth from space.
