Event description

Description

A spectacular free light show from Historic England

Using St Paul's iconic façade as a canvas, leading creatives Double Take Projections will project 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 St Paul’s and 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.
