Candlemas Candlelit Photography Evening

Photography Special Event Heritage

Photograph the Cathedral after-hours bathed in candlelight

Southwark Cathedral would like to invite all amateur and professional photographers to spend an evening taking photos of the Cathedral lit by candlelight. 

With Spring fast approaching, the Cathedral will be bathed in the candlelight of hundreds of candles. Experience the Cathedral as it would have been lit in the past and without the crowds at this after-hours event on the evening of Candlemas.

This is an occasional event and not to be missed. This is a chance to photograph the Cathedral as it would have been lit in the past.

Please note that we provide no equipment so please bring what you need. 

Tripods are welcome!

Spaces are strictly limited to just 40 so early booking is recommended. 

Please add your details to the Waiting List if you are unable to purchase a ticket and we will notify you if one becomes available or when our next photographic evening is taking place.

All photography taken on the day is for non-commercial use only and must not be used for any purpose other than personal use.
