Spitalfields Music Summer FestivalThe community-minded summer festival returns to Spitalfields this summer with a night at the Geffrye Museum when musicians from the Royal Academy of Music give a promenade performance. Shabaka Hutchings presents the result of his year-long sound project, collecting everyday sounds from Spitalfields, and vocal ensemble The Sixteen return to the stunning 18th-century Hawksmoor-designed Christ Church Spitalfields. The best thing about the biannual Spitalfields festivals (a winter festival is held either side of Christmas) is the array of contrasting venues: Old Spitalfields Market comes alive with what seems like impromptu musical performances while Christ Church hosts a cluster of classical concerts. Throw in Shoreditch's hip Village Underground for a multi-sensory performance of Beethoven's String Quartet in A minor, and Spitalfields City Farm for bucolic folk. The eclectic programme includes lashings of baroque, jazz and world music, while there is a series of talks and debates, walks and visits, and interactive workshops.

 

About Christ Church Spitalfields

Built in 1729, Nicholas Hawksmoor's Christ Church creation was declared dangerous and closed in 1956. Vigorous campaigning, from the poet Sir John Betjeman among others, eventually saved this city landmark from demolition, but took decades to raise the money for the full restoration that has finally returned one of London's most stunning churches to its full glory.
