Thousands of people have visited the church to view "The Cathedral Illuminated", the cathedral's annual sound and light projection show.
The show, which is in its fifth year, has a different theme every year, with this year’s show being called "The Beginning"
The show builds on the cathedral's 2019 themes of "Journeys through Space, Light and Time" to tell the story of Christmas.
Visitors to the cathedral have been treated to projections of the Christmas message in the palace and west front of the cathedral.
The light show also paid tribute to Notre-Dame Cathedral, showing a display of the rose windows which remained intact after the devastating fire in April.
Vicky Osborn, senior marketing manager at Lichfield Cathedral, spoke about the reaction from a Canon from Notre-Dame who had been invited to view the illuminations.
She said: "In his limited English, he described the show as 'magnificent' and was hugely touched by our gesture.
"We did this display in solidarity to show that cathedrals are old buildings in need of protecting.
"What happened at Notre-Dame is a stark reminder of how this type of beauty needs maintaining."
The illuminations have become a tradition at the cathedral, with attendees describing it as a place to get away from the rush of Christmas.
Vicky spoke about the number of people who had attended who had never been to the cathedral before.
She said: "It amazes me how many people come here who never normally visit the cathedral.
"It's great for us as we want to become a community hub and bring the cathedral back to what it used to be as a space for all."
The Cathedral Illuminated runs until Saturday, December 21 at Lichfield Cathedral, 19A The Close, Lichfield
