'St Paul's on Canvas' kicks off new lunchtime talk series

The first in a series of free lunchtime talks at St Paul's begins this month with a look at the Cathedral's extraordinary and eclectic range of oil paintings.

St Paul's on Canvas will look at how and why St Paul's has collected paintings over the years, many of which have never been on public display, and what they tell us about the life and work of the Cathedral.

Held on Tuesday 18 February from 1pm - 1.45pm in the Cathedral's Wren Suite, the talk is free and open to all. 

Booking is essential. To reserve a place please email

This talk is the first in a series of six across 2014, organised by the Cathedral's Collections department.

Each presentation will take an aspect of the Cathedral Collections as the starting point to illuminate and elucidate an aspect of the rich life and work of St Paul’s. These 45-minute introductions will be delivered by Cathedral staff and volunteers who have researched specific items from the Library, Archives or Object Collection. 

The talks will endeavour to bring star objects and less well known but significant treasures to the fore as they reveal details behind the big stories in the history of St Paul’s as well as some of the less well known facets of the pursuit of the Cathedral Mission and associated activities and events.

Space is limited for all sessions and booking will be essential. Booking will open when the programme, with titles and an indication of content, are posted on the website.
