For the first time ever, Westminster Abbey is allowing photography. 23 October.

Recommended Posts

For the first time ever, Westminster Abbey is allowing photography within its building by members of the public. It will be a one-off event on 23 October:

It can be of interest for those who would like to take a photo of a memorial stone to four founders of the Royal Ballet In the Poets’ Corner and of a window with Margot Fonteyn in the passage between the Dean’s Yard and the Cloisters:

Disappointing the timescale is so limited. I'm in London on the 23rd to see Morera/Bonelli Manon and I might have been interested but the timescale at 5.30 pm to 8pm is really too tight and would be very rushed.

It is disappointing but depends on the preceding events. The visitors/tourists have to leave the Abbey by 4.30 pm. Evening prayer normally said on Wednesday at 5.00pm. That is why the photography will be allowed only at 5.30 pm.

Why does *everything* seem to be happening on the 23rd?  Loads of things, not necessarily ballet-related, and so many of them that I can't possibly fit them all in :(
