Everything is connected

Have you ever looked up in awe at the night sky and wondered how you’re linked to the stars above? About Us, a spectacular celebration of our connections to everything around us – past, present and future – invites you to explore that very question. 

About Us uses cutting-edge projection mapping, animation, music, poetry and live performances to celebrate our place in the universe and the connections between us all.

Created by 59 ProductionsStemettes and The Poetry Society with school children and poets from across the UK, this epic show combines live performances and multimedia installations projected at night, for free, onto our historic landmarks from abbey to castle to guildhall.

Explore the magic and wonder of our shared history, from the Big Bang to the present day, by watching our online film.
