Event Details

This event finished on 16 November 2019

Historic England is working with the Poetry Society and leading creatives Double Take Projections to tell the story of those who risked their lives to protect the places they loved during the Second World War, at two cathedrals with opposing fates – London’s St Paul’s survived the Blitz largely intact whilst the medieval Coventry Cathedral could not be saved.

Stunning installations will transform the façades and precincts of St Paul’s Cathedral and Coventry Cathedral after dark, combining new poetry with powerful visuals and archive photography. Visitors will be immersed in atmospheric light and sound, unique to each location, as they travel around the buildings witnessing the poems unfurl.
