Spitalfields Winter FestivalSpitalfields' end of year musical celebration returns to warm up the winter nights. Taking place at several Spitalfields locations, the festival explores the east London area's hidden corners with early and contemporary music, musical tours, opera for under 2s, and free events which bring together global and local artists. The best thing about the biannual Spitalfields festivals (a summer festival is held in June) is the array of contrasting venues: Old Spitalfields Market comes alive with what seems like impromptu musical performances, while the stunning 18th century Hawksmoor-designed Christ Church hosts a cluster of classical concerts. Shoreditch's hip Village Underground holds some of the more contemporary offerings, and could you get a more apt setting for city-based bucolic folk than the Spitalfields City Farm?

 

About Christ Church Spitalfields

Built in 1729, Nicholas Hawksmoor's Christ Church creation was declared dangerous and closed in 1956. Vigorous campaigning, from the poet Sir John Betjeman among others, eventually saved this city landmark from demolition, but took decades to raise the money for the full restoration that has finally returned one of London's most stunning churches to its full glory.
