New technology to celebrate Candlemass

The Right Rev Chris Dalliston explains that, while Christmas may be a distant memory, the religious celebration actually ends on 2nd February.

It culminates in Candlemass, a festival of light, when Christians remember the time when Jesus was presented in the temple and was declared as a light to the nations

It was the perfect opportunity to try out some new technology at Newcastle's St Nicholas Cathedral.

Their new lighting system uses special LEDs which can be operated remotely to provide tailor made lighting for services.
