About Us

A unique music venue in central London and a masterpiece of English Baroque architecture, St John’s was designed and built by Thomas Archer and has survived fire, lightning, bomb plots and the Blitz. The beauty of the building is matched by an exceptional acoustic and from its restoration as both church and concert hall in the late 1960s, St John’s has presented some of the finest classical talent in a programme featuring choirs, chamber orchestras and period instrument groups.

In 2014 we will mark the 300th anniversary of the laying of St John's first corner stone. With a new administration, led by Richard Heason, we will launch a range of initiatives aimed at repositioning St John’s at the forefront of London’s classical music scene and a major appeal to support the future of our building and development of our artistic programme.
