BBC News Article About the Future of St Pauls: Statement from The Dean
13 May 2021
Following the BBC news article of the 13th May 2021 on the future of St Paul's Cathedral, The Very Reverend David Ison, Dean of St Paul's has made the following statement:
'This has been a year unlike any other, and every organisation that relies on visitor income is facing difficult decisions. St Paul’s has relied almost wholly on visitor income and the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted on our finances. But, we have survived many challenges over the centuries, and we are working hard to make sure that we are safe to stay open and ready for visits and worship for many years to come. We are incredibly grateful for the funding we have received from the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund and other supporters, which has been a lifeline during this unprecedented time. One of the best ways to support St Paul’s is visit the Cathedral from the 17th May and enjoy this beautiful Cathedral for yourself.'
St Paul's will be safely reopening for sightseeing on the 17th May 2021 in accordance with Government guidance, and advance tickets can be booked through our website.
