Between 2 September – 5 September, London held The Great Fire Festival to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London.

The Great Fire, although a tragedy, remains a key part of London’s history. Without The Great Fire, London would not be the city we know today.

To commemorate the great occasion, creative geniuses Artichoke Trust and London’s official visitor’s guide, visitlondon.com (the same people who brought Lumiere London) has organised a series of event taking place  The City of London to educate Londoners and visitors about The Great Fire.

St. Paul’s Cathedral was opened late and permitted photography inside. Something not normally allowed. Footages of the great Fire raging was projected on to St. Paul’s famous dome. A Fire Garden was organised in from of the Tate Modern and so much more.

I went down to some of these events to capture this red hot occasion.
