St Marylebone Festival 2021 - 18th - 23rd July
After a difficult year, we are absolutely delighted to announce the dates of the St Marylebone Festival 2021. Please save the dates and join us from 18th- 23rdJuly for a celebration of the incredible music of St Marylebone.
Supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, St Marylebone Parish Church will be hosting a number of events and concerts throughout the week, including theatre and music, celebrating the heritage of the area and our previous residents. Two themes have been brought to the fore by the recent pandemic - 'mental health' and 'climate - and this year's festival explores these in our performances.
As we emerge from the difficulties of the past year, we want to use this week to celebrate famous figures such as the great jazz duo Sir John Dankworth and Dame Cleo Laine, Gerald Finzi, Clara Novello (mother of Ivor), Lord Byron, and Italian composer Paolo Tosti, as well-as our many connections with our neighbor, the Royal Academy of Music.
Our 2021 lineup includes star performers such as pianist Joanna MacGregor CBE and Andrew Watts
