Review of The Great Exhibition - SPACE
Would you recommended: Yes
Superb event, very atmospheric yet also peaceful and contemplative.
It was fantastic & the 6 of us, including a 7 year old thoroughly enjoyed it.
what a great evening, absolutely wow. Carlisle city centre was so busy with people looking for the other lights.
this would be good for the Festive lights.
It was a different experience. It didnt really last very long
was too short only 10mins , what I saw was impressive
fantastic use of the cathedral as an exhibition/performance space - it worked really well. the light show was amazing.
it was good but not fantastic. the setting was awe inspiring. the music was not great. could have been much better.
Absolutely fantastic or as my 10yr old son said awe inspiring!
Really enjoyed the show.
Fantastically done, although local council could have briefed the volunteers to be better organised with directing the public. But event itself was amazing, excellent in fact, a thoroughly well done piece of entertainment and story telling with amazing visuals and sounds!
amazing loved every second of it!!
Really enjoyed it, wished it was longer
The display was interesting and entertaining but it would have benefitted from more introduction and interpretation. The organisation of the event could have been better. There was no explanation as to whether we could simply visit the space on our own or (as we discovered) had to sit and watch the presentation at specific timings. We ended up seated in the choir stalls and didn't have a particularly good view.
The associated 'illumination' of varous buildings (advertised as carlisle - City of lights) was very poor.
Fabulous light show. We were in a side pew in the Altar in the Cathedral and didn’t understand or get the full impression of the light show. We were able to stay for another showing and saw it straight on - very well done.

not sure what I was expecting but it was amazing we really enjoyed it!
Amazing event. The light show all in all was amazing including the lights on Carlisle Castle and the Civic Centre. The only downfall I feel was having to sit down for the main part as you didn't get the full effect of the lights and you did get a bit of a sore neck looking up for a long period. I would however recommend this event to others and would go to something similar in the future.
Absolutely fantastic would love to go again
Really worth going. A unique experience
Cathedral venue lovely
Really magical, I loved it. However, the main light show could of been a little longer in duration. A truly wonderful experience.
Loved it I would go again , hope there one next year
An awesome, in the real sense of the word, evening!
It was a very short exhibition after queuing in the cold for a long time
Would you recommended: No
Pretty good overall. Too many people in too small a space didn't help, but music and graphics were good, if not mind blowing, and the venue was the best thing about it. £5 for 15mins...OK, but could have been longer or a bit cheaper.
Men wearing hats in a religious building...just disrespectful
Excellent event thoroughly enjoyed by myself and my 4 year old. The event was organised and managed really well on the night. Hopefully more events like this happen in the future.
Very enjoyable experience.
First class presentation, looking forward to next year, bigger and better
Fantastic event. Areal spectacle.
Really good show. Graphics could have been a bit sharper on the main show they were a bit weak but overall it was excellent.
The event was absolutely lovely. There were four of us in our party and we all loved it. The setting was perfect and the music especially was amazing and really made it a great experience. I must say the stewards did a brilliant job. They are to be commended for their efficiency in checking our tickets and getting everyone in and out of the cathedral so smoothly.
Amazing experience and a lovely use of such a splendid building
Something unique and totally different for Carlisle. Spectacular is the only word to describe it.
Great experience in a great location
Amazing experience made even better because of the venue, the wonderful Cathedral.
Not to be missed

Brilliant experience. Interesting lighting effects on the ceilings walls and windows. I think the projections told a story but I'm not sure exactly what the story was. However the effects were mesmerising so for me, the story wasn't important.
Lovely almost calming ethereal atmosphere
Really pleased that it was decided to do this in our city.
Great idea and fantastic event.
Wonderful experience - can't wait for next year!
Beautiful and a very enjoyable event.
A spectacular light show in a beautiful venue, well worth a visit
Well worth the visit.
Faaabbb uuuuu lusssd
If going late make sure you see the display in the nave first, as they finish showing this at 9pm.

Excellent light show in Carlisle Cathedral.
Wonderful experience. Looking forward to this event again at Carlisle Cathedral.
an amazing show making good use of the space. We needed an information leaflet on things taking place outside the cathedral.
