COVID-19 Notice


With great regret, we have had no choice but to cancel our June 2020 dates for Summer Music in City Churches.


The Coronavirus situation is now such that it is impossible to plan public events with any certainty, and we must put the health and well-being of audiences, artists and our team of helpers first. We were on the point of announcing a lovely programme of concerts and we are deeply disappointed not to be able to go ahead - just at a time when music is perhaps needed more than ever. But it is our firm intention to re-schedule the entire festival as soon as it is sensible to do so.  


Summer Music in City Churches is still a fledgling festival with a bright future. We have been so much encouraged by the warmth and enthusiasm of our audiences in the first two years, and we hope you will join us as soon as we able to re-schedule. Please keep in touch with our plans by following us on Facebook and Twitter or subscribing to our newsletter


Thank you for your understanding. We wish all our supporters good health and courage in the weeks ahead and look forward to seeing you soon. 


With best wishes,
Ian Maclay and Jenny Robinson

Summer Music in City Churches is a fledgling festival, founded in 2018, presenting beautiful music to engage, divert and inspire, in ancient and architecturally stunning churches in London's Square Mile. Standing cheek by jowl with City offices, these churches are glorious settings in which to listen and reflect: oases of history, beauty and peace amidst the 24-7 hurly-burly of City life.

The theme for the second festival in June 2019 is WORDS & MUSIC. During a week and a half of events, you will find sumptuous settings of poetry, lyrical music inspired by poetry, plays and literature, words that illuminate music with biographical insight and context, music of significance to literary heroes and heroines, and more.
