Where Light Falls

October 24 - October 27

Free

Spectacular free light shows at St Paul’s Cathedral

Using St Paul’s iconic façade as a canvas, leading creatives Double Take Projections are projecting powerful poetry, visuals and photography to tell the fascinating story of the St Paul’s Watch, volunteers who risked their lives to protect the cathedral during the Blitz.

As most people took refuge in tube stations and air raid shelters across London, bombs rained down over the St Paul’s, the volunteers patrolled the cathedral. Armed with sandbags and water pumps, they were ready to put out flames at any moment. Their bravery ensured the survival of a masterpiece that became a symbol of resilience.

Part of Fantastic Feats: the building of London, the City of London’s six-month cultural events season.

Thursday 24 October, 6.30-10pm

Friday 25 October, 6.30-10pm
