Lumino by Ulf Pedersen


Take a walk on the light side.

Llanthony Secunda Priory will be illuminated with light. Artist Ulf Pedersen creates an immersive installation to escape from the busy surrounding city.

The vision is to invite the visitors within the grounds to evoke the feeling of extended open space there once was.
A number of external buildings surrounding the site will have large text projected onto them, offering suggestions of the views that were once enjoyed by the visitors; 50 acres of fields, orchards and beyond to 'very goodly meadow ground'.

The 3 main buildings (Brick Range, Medieval Range & Tythe Barn) will be illuminated.
The illuminations aim to raise the awareness of the architectural charm of the buildings, the mixture of architectural styles and indeed the different techniques and materials blended into the walls.

Llanthony Secunda Priory in Gloucester is the remains of a once large and important Augustinian Priory which was founded outside the city walls in 1136. It is a scheduled monument with listed buildings that has played an important part in Gloucester's history for over 900 years.
Our Re-formation Project is bringing Llanthony back to life. The two main buildings dating from the 15th century have been restored and conserved and are now back in daily use. The grounds have been landscaped with new paths, benches, trees and planting and will include an example of a medieval courtyard garden. Special events and projects over the next few years will establish Llanthony Secunda Priory as a heritage attraction and cultural venue.
Llanthony Secunda Priory formally opened on the 27th August 2018 following 19 months of restoration and conservation work

Llanthony in medieval times was a "noble house……set about handsomely with pleasure gardens", providing hospitality, learning and employment. Today, a miracle of survival, the Priory provides a great welcome for all, important once again to Gloucester and its community.
