Huge Floating Earth Is Set To Light Up Beverley Minster This Month

Huge Floating Earth Is Set To Light Up Beverley Minster This Month

Last October the art installation was located in Leeds city centre and had also featured in Hull Minster as part of the Freedom Festival back in 2021. And, now the huge revolving Earth will return to East Yorkshire this summer.

A floating moon installation featured at Bolton Abbey’s Priory Church by the same artist. Set to be featured at Beverley Minster, its named Gaia Earth, the artwork has proven a huge hit drawing thousands of visitors all over the UK. It offers visitors the chance to see the planet like never before.

It was created by Luke Jerram and is a seven-metre model that appears to float in front of visitors. It’s a great shot for the Gram if you’re that way inclined.
