Concerts & Live Events

The church is often used by outside groups for classical and contemporary music concerts, theatre productions, art events and talks.

External events are all arranged and advertised independently by the group hiring the Church, and ticketing information can usually be found on the internet.

We aim to include all external events on our Calendar whenever possible, but we do not manage tickets.

Reviews of recent events at St Giles

“the church at the other end of guitar-store heaven Denmark Street – St Giles-in-the-Fields – known as the Poets’ Church, it’s an ethereal and shadowy building that has hosted performances by Bon Iver and Julianna Barwick as well as poetry readings by Patti Smith (who named it one of her favourite churches in England).” – Time Out
“the wonderfully suitable little spot of intimate calm that is St. Giles-in-the-Fields Church.” –
“Perhaps it’s the venue, a working Christian church, that brings out these qualities” –
