One of the newest additions to the Candlelight roster is the Anglican church, St Stephen Walbrook, which had its foundation stones laid on 17th December 1672, more than 300 years ago. Designed by famed architect and astronomer Sir Christopher Wren (the same man that designed St Paul’s Cathedral), the church, with its altar at its centre and a grand dome above, will be illuminated by a sea of candles that will flicker and glisten off of the marble finishes and ornate finishes. The acoustics of the church are also fantastic.
Built in the early nineteenth century, St Mary’s Church has undergone several restoration projects whilst retaining its striking architecture. The 210-foot spire is hard to miss and, as a Grade I listed building, St Mary’s leaves little to be desired in terms of aesthetics. Counted among the only 2.5% of listed buildings falling under this coveted category, the church is an elegant setting for intimate Candlelight concerts.
Do you feel like attending a classical performance at a venue with sweeping views of the Thames and the city? At Glazier’s Hall, you can! The original Glazier’s Hall in Fye Foot Lane was destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666. After 300 years, it was rebuilt at its current Grade II listed home on the south side of London Bridge. Today, the venue offers seven unique spaces available for hire boasting stunning design features such as Georgian brick arches and a grade-listed York stone floor.
Boasting 23 different rooms and spaces, Central Hall is one of the largest events venues in central London. The event space was originally a public meeting place for the Methodist Church in 1912. Central Hall’s Grade II* listed building has seen everything from events such as Stand Up to Cancer, The Late Late Show, and the first UN public address in 1946. Central Hall’s distinctive architecture and striking features provide the ideal setting for mesmerising Candlelight concerts.
In 1905, St Saviour’s Church became Southwark Cathedral. Located in the heart of the Bankside community, the cathedral provides is an intersection for inclusivity and faith.
