Where Light Falls

St Paul's Cathedral, London, London, United Kingdom

Friday, October 25, 2019 - 18:00 to Sunday, October 27, 2019 - 22:00

Experience St Paul’s in a different light across three evenings this October. Cutting-edge projections, inspired by original poetry, illuminate this iconic landmark in honour of the men and women who risked their lives to save the Cathedral during the Second World War. 

Putting themselves in the path of bombs, the daring members of St Paul’s Watch ensured the survival of a masterpiece that became a symbol of resilience. Historic England, working with The Poetry Society and leading creatives Double Take Projections, invite you to uncover the hidden histories of our wartime heroes. 

Historic England is working in partnership with St Paul’s Cathedral. There will be a companion piece to this work at Coventry Cathedral 11-14 November.

Where Light Falls is part of Historic England’s Loss and Destruction season. The season has been inspired by What Remains an Imperial War Museum exhibition, curated in partnership with Historic England, focussing on the deliberate destruction of cultural places, the objects and stories that bring them to life and the rebuilding of culture that follows. What Remains runs from 5 July 2019 – 5 January 2020.
