The music was excellent. The queue to get in wasn’t good. The staff on duty were efficient, helpful and friendly. The show was good but it didn’t last long. It would have been better in a larger venue.

I was glad that Carlisle put this on, but I felt it could've been 'bigger and better'. It lacked 'gusto'. In particular, the lights around the city could've been more ambitious - how about turning some if the street lights and shop signs off? Maybe having a few stalls selling hot drinks and food?

Show in Cathedral excellent - rest of lights in Carlisle less so. Confusing Skiddle details for tickets one evening showed 6.30 to 7.30 but tickets were for 8.45 - another 6.30 - 10.30 but last tickets 8.45. Bit of a mess boys!

we walked from the train station via the Citadel towards the Carlisle cathedral , sadly the displays were rather lame to be honest, so much more could have been done with them especially Carlisle Castle.... but once inside the cathedral we were blown away by the concept and presentation - so you kept the best until last!

Great in the cathedral but the other venues were disappointing as just still lights no projection.

I was extremely disappointed with this experience, particularly regarding the "music" that was chosen to accompany the lights display. To say I was underwhelmed could even be an exaggeration. The very title given the exhibition: SPACE: God, the Universe and Everything indicated, to me at least, that one might expect to experience something more profound than actually materialised. In the end it was simply noisy and shallow, almost wholly due to to the audio impact. I know there was a warning that the sound effects would be loud but I am convinced that a more sensitive approach, given the building and its own splendid music traditions, would have made the event much more of a moving experience.

The space was not ideal because of the internal architecture which spoiled and distorted the images. Also there wasn’t enough time between sessions for everyone to sit down before the start of the show. Apart from that I enjoyed the concept and the music.

Nice building but really poor as a screen/background. Poor seating position made watching really awkward. The later exhibit was better in most respects. Lack of any information on entry did not help at all, though we discovered it was available.

Brilliant event in the wonderful setting of Carlisle Cathedral. However the use of cameras/mobiles must be banned during the light show. Much was spoilt by people holding up mobiles which both shielded the view whilst blinding you with the bright screen lights. Wouldn't be allowed in pictures /plays for this exact reason.

Wonderful, atmospheric location and technically very good. Music good but sound quality didn't do it justice. The theme of God and the Universe was very good, however the experience could have had more
impact if the scientific symbols and formulae had been in a more logical order and the quick flashing images of human achievement towards the end, had been less quick, so people would have had time to realise exactly what they represented.

Lovely venue and The sound quality of the music was great. But I thought the music choice could have been better. Music can really make an atmosphere but more recognisable/classical music would have been preferred. Vangellis or Beethoven or even John Williams would have given me goosebumps! Also , as I had 3 kids with me I was hoping for some facts/educational info as my kids are interested in the planets!

Felt very rushed round- it wasn't clear that the initial seated section had started and had no idea what we were meant to be looking at- sadly I don't think the cathedral ceiling and walls lent themselves to being projected onto clearly. There was one bit at the near the exit that was great- a vault like area with very clear projections- but sadly as we were about to find a space to stand and look we were ushered out by a guide. A lovely idea but poorly executed.
