For centuries St Martin’s has been known and loved for its beautiful Georgian building in the heart of London, for its inspiring music, enlightened thinking and its work with homeless and vulnerable people. To raise money to continue this work, St Martin’s is hosting a Christmas Gala Evening on Wednesday 4 December, 7-10pm.

The evening begins with a glittering revival of Vaughan William’s “The First Nowell”. This nativity was written specially for St Martin’s in 1958 as part of the effort to raise funds to bring refugee children from post-war Germany to the UK. The nativity will be followed by a Christmas party with celebrity entertainment and a silent auction.

All money raised on this spectacular evening will help St Martin’s continue its work.
