Where Light Falls
October 24 - October 27Free
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.
