St Paul’s Cathedral has been here for over 1,400 years. It has been built and rebuilt five times, and always its main purpose has been as a
place of worship and prayer.
St Paul's, with its world-famous dome, is an iconic feature of the London skyline. Step inside and you can enjoy the Cathedral's awe-inspiring
interior, and uncover fascinating stories about its history.
Learning & Faith
Education is a core part of the Cathedral's work, delivered through a variety of events by St Paul's Forum, St Paul's Institute and the
Schools & Families department.
History & Collections
For more than 1,400 years, a Cathedral dedicated to St Paul has stood at the highest point in the City. The present Cathedral is the
masterpiece of Britain's most famous architect Sir Christopher Wren.
Behind the scenes, the cost of caring for St Paul's and continuing to deliver our central ministry and work is enormous and the generosity of
our supporters is critical.
Widely considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful buildings and a powerful symbol of the splendour of London, St Paul’s Cathedral is a
breathtaking events venue.
Reinterpreting of the Stations of the Resurrection
11 April 2017
Here Comes The Sony, a reinterpretation of the tradition of the Stations of the Resurrection which encourages meditation on the
resurrection appearances of Jesus, will be installed for the first time under the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral during Eastertide.
The 12 monitor video and sound installation comes to the Cathedral on Wednesday 26 April at 7pm.
This installation follows Stations of the Cross, 14 video works which will be projected onto the circular Henry Moore altar at St Stephen Walbrook church throughout the night on Easter Eve, Saturday 15 April.
St Stephen Walbrook, designed by Christopher Wren in 1672, accommodates the first classical dome to have been built in England, and was Wren's
prototype for St Paul's Cathedral. This architectural relationship provides a physical and interpretive context for the premiere of this new work
by Mark Dean and Lizzi Kew Ross & Co, curated by Lucy Newman Cleeve.
On Wednesday 26 April, Being Here, devised by choreographer, Lizzi Kew Ross and the dancers, will be performed in the middle of the
circular stage. This combines images of human presence, comfort, hope, loss and regret implicit in the Resurrection stories with the shifting
qualities of colour and sound formed by the installation. While not enacting the narratives, the dance performance is an interpretation of the
moment, producing a sense of a shared journey and progression through time and space and enabling the audience to curate the tension and the
distance between the installation and their own responses.
