Join us at the Shrine for the premiere public screening of the enchanting new documentary, Let the Light Shine. 

For generations, commemorative glass has served as a meaningful way of honouring those who have bravely served and made the ultimate sacrifice.

Let the Light Shrine explores some spectacular examples of this striking art form and unpacks the social, cultural and military history embedded in glass. Through expert commentary by art historian and stained-glass expert, Dr Bronwyn Hughes OAM, you will discover a fascinating tale of courage, conflict, and civic pride through the enduring beauty of glass.

After the screening, you will have the chance to delve deeper into the world of commemorative stained glass through a Q&A with Dr Bronwyn Hughes OAM, scriptwriter and narrator Fiona Gruber and filmmaker Dr David Smith.
