There will be a few closures in place next week while the celebration takes place. 

From Tuesday 18th February to the Saturday 22nd the Cathedral's facade and and interior will be lit up by large-scale projections.

A large high number of visitors are expected, as a result a few travel restrictions  will be in place:

  • A road closure is in place for the High Street and there will be no vehicle access via the High Street Gate from 6pm until 11pm
  • No pedestrian access to the Close unless you are attending the show
  • St Ann's Gate will be closed from 6pm
  • No parking will be available in the Close
  • Access for ticket holders only through the Harnham Gate

The nearest car parks to the main visitor entrance are Crane Street and Brown Street.

The Cathedral have put these closures in place to help manage the public's safety. 


So far, over 6,000 tickets have been bought for the sound and light show, but it's not yet sold out. 

Cathedral bosses say a limited number of them may be available on the day and these will be sold on a first come first served basis.

Booking in advance is being advised though and you can do this via Salisbury Cathedral's website
