Celebrating St Marylebone
4 May 2021
St Marylebone Festival, a celebration of the incredible music, history and community of St Marylebone Parish Church, will return this year from 18 to 23 July.
Supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, St Marylebone Parish Church will be hosting several 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 over the events of the last year – mental health and climate – and this year’s festival explores these in the performances.
As we emerge from the difficulties of the past year, the festival will 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 the festival’s many connections with the neighbouring Royal Academy of Music.
St Marylebone Festival’s 2021 lineup includes star performers such as pianist Joanna MacGregor CBE and Andrew Watts.
