London Symphony - A Poetic Journey Through the Life of a City by Candlelight

Heritage Special Event Music

Join us at a candlelit Southwark Cathedral for a screening of the inspiring and beautiful black and white film LondonSymphony. With no dialogue, just a stunning accompanying original musical score, this film is a tribute the glory of this great city and it's diversity and culture.

London Symphony (2017) is a brand new silent film – a city symphony – which offers a poetic journey through London, a cosmopolitan city facing a challenge to its identity in the current political climate.

Directed by Alex Barrett, and featuring an original musical composition by James McWilliam, it is an artistic portrait of the city as it stands today, and a celebration of its culture and diversity.

The film was nominated for the Michael Powell Award for Best British Film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2017.

Doors will open at 7pm and the screening will be followed by a short interval before a Q&A with the Sub Dean & Canon Pastor Michael Rawson and the Director, Alex Barrett.

Refreshments will be available to buy in Lancelot's Link before the screening and during the interval.

The screening will take place in the beautiful candlelit Cathedral nave.

'Southwark Cathedral is an inclusive Christian community where we are passionate about celebrating our wonderful city of London. There has been a Christian presence on this site since the 7th century and we continue to engage with our vibrant, diverse and multicultural community which is showcased in London Symphony. We look forward to welcoming you to the Cathedral to explore what it means to live a good life in this fantastic city'

Sub Dean & Canon Pastor, Rev Michael Rawson
