London Handel FestivalThe London Handel Festival has been running for over 25 years, celebrating Handel's music at venues across London with an extensive six-week season of concerts, talks and walks. Venues include the delightful St George's Church in Mayfair, Handel's own parish church, where the Handel Singing Competition and dozens of intimate performances take place. This year's programme begins in March with a performance of Semele at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. Collaborations with the Royal College of Music continue with the opportunity to attend the modern UK premiere of Handel's 1739 pastiche Giove in Argo.

About St George's Church Hanover Square

St George's was finished in 1724 at a cost of £10,000, part of the great church-building programme of Queen Anne. It's a classic piece of Queen Anne architecture, though somewhat in need of restoration. George Frederick Handel was a regular worshipper at St George's, and partly as a result, it has now become home to a regular program of classical music, including the annual Handel festival.
