Event information

Luke Jerram’s spectacular installation ‘Gaia’, a 7 metre replica of planet Earth, will be on display at Ely Cathedral.

Suspended from high above, this globally acclaimed work of art will be the focal point of a special exhibition to highlight and address some of the very real issues affecting our world.

We all have a duty and responsibility to safeguard our planet and acknowledge the impact of climate change. We hope that ‘Heaven & Earth – The World in Our Hands’ will raise awareness, educate and inspire us all to protect our world. This event will feature exhibits with a focus on climate change plus talks on environmental issues.

This event is hosted by Ely Cathedral
