Union Chapel

On Monday we had the pleasure of being whisked off to St Paul’s Cathedral to hear a symphony orchestra and choir performing a War Requiem as part of the City of London Festival. With 10 free tickets snapped up, and free taxi rides to and from St Pauls, our group were excited and raring to go!

With a pre-concert introduction and Q&A with the performers, the concert was given another dimension and made more accessible to those who may not have experienced such a thing before.

The group had a fantastic time, and also really enjoyed visiting St Paul’s Cathedral, many of whom had not been since they were children, and were very impressed with the architecture and incredible sound.

So a huge thanks to Phillipa from City of London Festival, we are looking forward to next year already!
