This weekend, a huge video projection will be beamed onto the frontage of St Paul’s Cathedral, and some photos of the overnight tests have been released.

Working with the Poetry Society and Double Take Projections, the video event tells the story of the St Paul’s Watch, the volunteers who ensured the survival of St Paul’s Cathedral during the Second World War.

Laser and video projections will transform the façade of St Paul’s after dark, combining powerful archive photography and animation with an atmospheric soundscape.

The event takes place at St Paul’s Cathedral from Thur to Sat – 24–26 October, 6.30–10pm and on Sunday 27 October, 8–10pm

Where Light Falls is part of Historic England’s Loss and Destruction Season, and Fantastic Feats: the building of London, the City of London’s six-month cultural events season.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Hi Ian, what lovely images. If the rain eases off, I’ll pop down there to take some this evening. I’m an interior design and construction photographer, but there’s only so much wallpaper and carpeting a person can photograph without ones head exploding! This will be very therapeutic. Is there any way I can access the high elevation where you took your shot from? You’re welcome to any of my images
