Thursday 14 December 7.30pm
Join Sonoro to celebrate the joy of Christmas, with festive choral favourites, new settings of traditional texts, and beautiful arrangements of familiar melodies. Featuring music by Rutter, Howells, McDowall, Lauridsen, and the world premiere of ‘Winter Nights’ by Michael Higgins.
We are at 197 Piccadilly London W1J 9LL between Piccadilly and Jermyn Street, about 200 yards from Piccadilly Circus.
St James’s aspires to be a place where all can belong, and where every person’s gifts and identities are welcome and celebrated. We are working to improve the experience at St James’s in the church building and the online community. We have step-free access from the courtyard to the church, and a toilet for disabled people. The courtyard and Redemption Roasters coffee shop are wheelchair accessible. If you have special access requirements (e.g. wheelchair users) please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
