On Wednesday 1st October, NADFAS and the National Churches Trust are holding an evening of Words and Music at the beautiful St Paul’s Church in Covent Garden. The special evening will combine a talk by noted designer and architectural writer Matthew Rice and a recital by renowned Russian pianist Pavel Timofeyevsky. Matthew will talk about ‘The Unlovable Church’, offering an insight into the wonderful hidden gems featured in his Rice’s Church Primer.

Drinks and canapés will be served, and Matthew will be doing a book-signing. Doors will open at 5.30pm for a 6.30pm start, should you wish to arrive early to explore the famous Actors’ Church, an Inigo Jones masterpiece. Carriages will be at 9pm.
