New Exhibition: The Great Restoration of the 1920s
Friday 24 May 2019 until May 2020

On Christmas Eve 1924 St Paul’s Cathedral was served with a Dangerous Structures Notice requesting the removal of the dome. Using archive material and objects from the Cathedral collections, this display recounts the extraordinary story of how the Cathedral moved and cracked, causing concerns for the structure, as well as the ingenious engineering endeavours that ensured the building was made safe for future generations.

Religion and the Art of William Blake
Thursday 9th January
1pm
William Blake is one of over forty artists commemorated in St Paul's Cathedral. Religion was profoundly important to him in a questing and questioning way - and it infused his artistic production. In this talk Martin Myrone, Senior Curator, pre-1800 British Art at Tate Britain, and co-curator with Amy Concannon of the William Blake exhibition, will elucidate the development of Blake's complex,often unorthodox, religious thinking using selected examples from the show. 
Admission is free but places are limited and must be booked in advance
