Winter Festival, Christ Church Spitalfields


Nicholas Hawksmoor, a Nottinghamshire-born architect, designed Christ Church early in the 18th century. He had worked with Sir Christopher Wren since his late teens. Christ Church was his masterpiece. Image: LondonTown

Ivan Hewett writes - The Spitalfields Winter Festival offers uplift and calm – and warmth (this is one church that isn’t draughty). You can slip into the lovely, creamy-white glow of Christ Church Spitalfields, enjoy an hour of music – this year focused on Monteverdi madrigals – and be home for a late dinner.

Lovely. The Festival ends with Christmastide on January 7th.
