The St Marylebone Festival
20 - 26 July 2019
In anticipation of our Changing Lives project, the fourth St Marylebone Festival (20-26 July 2019) continues our tradition of celebrating our parish's local community and the rich cultural heritage.
‘Come and Sing’ Marylebone resident Karl Jenkins' The Armed Man; and explore our connections with famous figures such as Judy Garland, Vaslav Nijinsky, Kathleen Ferrier and Ralph Vaughan Williams. You can transport yourself to a Marylebone of the past by listening to (and even dancing to) music from the 18th Century Pleasure Gardens of Old Marylebone, and experience a 1920s Marylebone dinner and soirée on the final evening.
To coincide with the St Marylebone Festival we are also showing an exhibition of icons and other religious works by Gabrielle Boyle. Entitled Heavenly Light, the exhibition takes place in the Crypt Hall from 16th - 27th July 2019.
Come and help us tell our story!
