Recitals are held every Tuesday and Friday at 1.15pm.
Do note the pictures in our toilets which are twinned with loos in the Congo.

If the loos are shut, just ask for them to be opened.
HARVEST OF THE SEA
This year, St Mary-at-Hill once again celebrates the Harvest of the Sea with concerts, an exhibition and a service. Each year, as the ward church of Billingsgate, we join with the New Billingsgate Fish Merchants and the Billingsgate Ward Club to host the Fish Harvest Festival service, complete with an amazing display of wet fish. Do join us at 11.00am on Sunday 12th October as we continue this centuries-old tradition.
To bring in income for our work, we let the space. Wedding receptions, private receptions, formal or informal lunches or dinners can be accommodated.
St Mary-at-Hill is suitable for conferences, theatrical rehearsals and productions, choir and orchestra rehearsals, auditions and competitions, major concert performances, recitals and recordings. We own movable chairs, portable staging, an enviable piano and organ and have a splendid acoustic! What is not here can be hired in. To discuss a booking, contact the administrator.
Much of the original church was destroyed in the Great Fire of London (1666), but the walls and frame remained standing. The building has survived two further major fires, and it stood unscathed through the Blitz. Although marked by its experiences, the spectacular interior retains the beauty and grace of Wren's vision.
