I think it is after the shortest day which is December 21st. However in practice you will not notice until later Jan/Feb,

Longest night is Dec 21st, after that they start to get shorter. But you only get really light nights after the clocks go forward next March

You won't really notice a decent change until nearly March time, after the clock moves forward.

21st December is the shortest of the year in the UK. SO days become longer and nights become shorter after this date. However, it'll still feel like the dark nights are long until early March.

Although the shortest day is December 21st , you don't start to see any difference until mid February. Change to BST (British Summer Time) is March 29th 2008
