For four nights, St Paul's Cathedral will be illuminated with projections of the building's history.

Wren's famous church will show images telling the story of the people who fought to save it during the second world war.

Historic England has paired with The Poetry Society and light show company Double Take Projections for the three-night event in October.

Focus is on members of the St Paul’s Watch, who risked their own lives during the Blitz to ensure the cathedral stayed safe, under Winston Churchill's instructions that the building must be saved 'at all costs'. No further details have yet been released, but we're looking forward to seeing the results.

Where Light Falls takes place at St Paul's Cathedral, 24-26 October, 6.30pm-10pm and 27 October 8pm-10pm before moving on to Coventry Cathedral. It's part of City of London's Fantastic Feats festival.
