Armistice Film projected onto St Magnus Cathedral

A special film marking the centenary of the end of the First World War is currently being broadcast on St Magnus Cathedral walls. The film was funded by Kirkwall Townscape Heritage Initiative and is being projected onto St Magnus Cathedral until Remembrance Day on 11th November. The short film lasts about 20 minutes and is on a loop from 5pm till 8pm every night. I went down to see it a couple of nights ago and got some photos on my phone. It really was quite special to see the magnificent Cathedral being used as a projection screen.

St Magnus Cathedral was founded by Earl Rognvald in honour of his Uncle Earl Magnus in 1137. The building took 300 years to complete and the cathedral dominates the skyline of Kirkwall. The cathedral is built using local red and yellow sandstone. If you ever get a chance to come to Orkney then it is well worth a visit.
