News of future events
St Botolph’s has a mailing list which provides information about forthcoming concerts once a month. If you would like to be added to the list please contact Matthew Dunn for further information.
Wednesday Lunchtime Recitals
St Botolph’s has been running lunchtime recitals since April 2012.
They have proved a popular way to relax at lunchtime with first rate music given by a range of performers; from soloists from London’s prestigious music schools to international recitalists travelling to London to perform on St Botolph’s historic organ.
Admission is free but a retiring collection is taken to support the soloists and the work of the church. The recitals last for 30mins and begin at 13.05 on Wednesdays. Recitals do not take place during August or over the Christmas period.
If you are a performer and would like to give a recital please contact Matthew Dunn with your CV and prospective programme and you will be contacted directly.

The organ of St Botolph’s is arguably the oldest church organ in the country and has been exceptionally well restored by Goetze and Gywnn in 2006. Details of forthcoming organ recitals can be found here and on the church noticeboard.
In addition to the lunchtime recitals, St Botolph’s occasionally hosts evening concerts. News of forthcoming evening concerts will be shown here when the next dates are finalised.
