Winter Festival, Christ Church Spitalfields

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.
