The The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings London Group, in association with The Georgian Group proudly present this unique opportunity to hear early baroque music performed in one of London’s finest baroque churches, consecrated in 1730.

A wonderful evening, performed by the highly acclaimed ‘Baroque Encounter’ in a programme of baroque music written around the time of the celebrated architect of St Anne’s, Nicholas Hawksmoor 1661-1736.

Celebrate the approach of Christmas and experience a ‘Baroque Encounter’ in this marvellously atmospheric Church, which featured in the Christmas television specials of 'Call the midwife' and the tough East End film 'Legend'.

Come and enjoy the Christmas carols, light refreshments, mulled wine and mince pies in this unique and historic setting.

Doors Open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
