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.

Cathedral's Adult Learning and Schools & Family Learning departments.
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.
St Paul's music outreach programme is an innovative community engagement initiative which is educating and inspiring children
across London through the arts – particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
13,000 children engaging with choral and organ music
300 young people with enhanced life chances
1,200 young people with greater confidence and ambition
Our professional musicians run intensive workshops with schools, choirs, and children’s music groups, with many participants having the amazing
opportunity of performing at St Paul’s.
St Paul's music outreach programme has a track record of developing self-esteem and aspiration through performance, and by bringing together
disparate cultures it fosters mutual understanding and more resilient communities. As well as a singing scheme for London and a project to
introduce children to the organ, we run the Hackney Children’s Choir and numerous other creative initiatives.
Following an extremely successful pilot we are seeking to upscale the programme, significantly enhancing its reach and impact.
We hope to increase our music outreach provisions through the new School Development Campaign - Learning in Harmony. Please click here for more information.

this at Nightingale. I would like to thank your whole team for taking such an innovative and inclusive approach to working with
