St James's Church, Piccadilly, is located in the heart of central London. It was designed in the 17th century by Sir Christopher Wren and was reputed to be his favourite. It is a Grade I listed building which displays the font designed by the master carver Grinling Gibbons. This is where the poet, mystic and artist William Blake was baptised.

The event

Following the great success of previous events, we are delighted to hold a Fundraising concert in this wonderful location, to celebrate World PH Day.

Internationally acclaimed conductor Stephen Barlow with the Festival Chamber Orchestra and soprano Kathryn Jenkin present an evening of popular classics including: Mozart’s Exsultate, Jubilate; Handel’s Silete Venti; Warlock’s Capriol Suite and Haydn’s Symphony no 44.

Knowing first-hand what it means to live with the devastating effects of PH, I would encourage everyone to support the work of the PVRI through our latest fundraising venture.
