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.

YMCA presents The Little Big Camp at St Giles Church


On Saturday, 3 September we’ll be inviting families with young children join us for an afternoon camp out in the heart of the city! Families can enjoy a discovery trail which takes you on a journey inside the historic church to its garden and playground – make sure you get your little camper’s passport stamped at each flag to receive a special prize. We promise all the usual fun and games – a bouncy castle, face painting, glitter tattoos, a teddy bear first aid station and a little bit more – a music recital for little ones in the church plus there will be a range of outdoor activities and lots marshmallows too.
A selection of very special local pop-up food and drink stalls will make sure nobody goes hungry. Just don’t forget your sleeping bags! Entry is £2 and kids go free!

Collection of Folk

We are currently hosting a monthly Folk evening organised by Lupus Albus, on the last Wednesday of the month.  Distilling the acoustic roots of our neighbours in Tin Pan Alley and working with some of London’s most marginalised people, Collection of Folk is a highlight on the London folk calendar.  To find out more, including the forthcoming line up visit their website here

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” –
