Spring Candlelit Photography Evening

Spring Candlelit Photography Evening


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

As the evenings become lighter just before we welcome Summer, the glow of the candles, as they flicker in the peace and calmness, along with the fading light from outside will give all of those interested in photography a chance to test their skills and enjoy the Cathedral after hours.

This is an occassional 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 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. 


What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

The Cathedral is located a 5 minute walk from London Bridge Mainline and Underground Station.  A number of buses also serve the local area and other underground stations nearby are Cannon Street and Monument.

Unfortunately there is no parking available at the Cathedral.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

We will not be providing any equipment for this event so please bring all that you need.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Yes please!

What is the refund policy?

Tickets are non-refundable unless this event is cancelled.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Yes, no problem at all.

Can I use any photographs I take on the evening for commercial use?

No. All photography taken on the evening is for non-commercial use only and must not be used for any purpose other than personal use. 

The promotional event image was taken at our last Photography evening by Aidan Cusack who has kindly allowed us to use it for this event.
