Carlisle Cathedral constructed in the 12th century, with its medieval features of grandeur and style where the lighting scheme was designed to highlight the beautiful painted ceiling of the chancel. Bespoke luminaries were specifically designed for the project to ensure a discreet lighting scheme that is both functional and mounted in a way that does not damage the listed building envelope. The emphasis was to feature the history of the cathedral and improve the ambiance for the performances that take place. The lighting delivers flexibility to suits various events throughout the year thanks to the lighting control system.
