Michael Berkeley's guest is the artist Bruce Munro, best known for his lighting installations such as Field of Light, first exhibited at the V&A Museum in 2004. He is also known for CDSea (made of 600,000 unwanted CDs donated by the general public from across the world), and 'Light Shower', an installation made for the spire cross within Salisbury Cathedral, designed to be switched on for the cathedral's 'Darkness into Light' candle-lit procession in 2010. The following year he unveiled a new installation, Star-Turn, a one-night-only piece to raise funds for the Help for Heroes charity. Munro's most recent installation, Cantus Arcticus, was launched in March this year and continues until the end of October at Waddeson Manor. His work was featured as an example of outstanding lighting design in the book by Design Museum, How to Design a Light (2010).

Bruce Munro's musical choices include Mozart's Ave Verum Corpus as well as orchestral music by Rodrigo, Rautavaara and Prokofiev.
