Ghosts in the Ruins 29 May 2022: Sunday on BBC Four

Storyville "On the Morning You Wake (to the End of the World)" 5 July 2022: Tuesday on BBC Four 11

Created to mark the sixtieth anniversary of the consecration of Coventry Cathedral, Ghosts in the Ruin is a performance work that features original choral music, projections of archive imagery and poetry by local writers. The piece takes audiences on a physical journey between the new cathedral and the ruins of the original site, retelling the history of the space and exploring themes of reconciliation and sanctuary that characterise the city.

This is the film of the site-specific performance, commissioned by Coventry Cathedral and the Coventry City of Culture Trust, and created by Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement recipient Nitin Sawhney CBE with the people of Coventry.

Ghosts in the Ruins received its world premiere on 27 January 2022 in Coventry Cathedral.
