St. John’s, Smith Square – live classical music in the heart of London

All of the concerts I have attended at St. John’s, Smith Square have been enjoyable in this tucked away venue in Westminster.     The church is regarded  as one of the masterpieces of English Baroque and also one of London’s finest concert venues.  I would consider this one of London’s Hidden Gems since it is tends to  attract  internationally renowned artists and performers.  An evening that includes a concert and a dinner in the crypt restaurant underneath the church makes for a relatively inexpensive night out in London .

A couple of upcoming events that sound good are:
