The church is open every day and visitors are welcome to attend a service, concert or event and for prayer and reflection. Visitors are also welcome to walk in and enjoy the beautifully restored architecture as long as an event is not taking place.
Concerts by candlelight in this serene yet warm and welcoming church are a magical experience. With a famously rich acoustic, the unforgettable venue’s musical tradition includes performances by Handel and Mozart and the founding of the Academy of St Martin in-the-Fields. At the heart of London’s music-making for over 250 years, today’s diverse programme includes ticketed evening classical music concerts on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7.30pm, family concerts, late night events in church and Wednesday Jazz Nights in the Café in the Crypt at 8.00pm. The free Lunchtime Concerts Series celebrates 65 years this year. Hear up and coming international performers in the heart of London’s every Monday Tuesday and Friday at 1.00pm.
Booking concert or jazz tickets is recommended
Les Routiers Café of the Year 2012, the Café in the Crypt is a welcome retreat from busy Trafalgar Square and the perfect place for a snack or meal if you’re going to a concert in the church or other attraction nearby. The daily changing menu of freshly prepared food, sustainably sourced whenever possible, is great value for local office workers and visitors on the tourist trail. And there aren’t many places you can enjoy Wednesday night jazz sitting amongst tombstones.
Open all year around, with a Christmas special shop in December, you can find lots here in the Crypt.
