During February a 4 meter illuminated globe was suspended in the Abbey with a series of events held to highlight issues surrounding mental health. The Light was an art installation designed by artist Richard McLester and a small team.
To celebrate the launch of The Light in Romsey Richard performed Songs of the Light underneath the globe on 4th February. Joining him were a large choir of local pupils from The Romsey School, Romsey Abbey, Romsey Voices and community singers from Poole.
During the performance there were projections onto the globe of interviews with local people giving reflections of what darkness and light mean to them.
These clips were shown again the next day at our Annual Mental Health Sunday service.
