London Handel Festival - St John’s Smith Square

St John’s Smith Square

In the exceptional setting of St John’s, acoustics, atmosphere, fine dining and architecture come together to create a rich and welcoming experience. St John’s Smith Square is a significant musical landmark, playing host to today’s leading international artists, who perform inspiring and exciting programmes. So, too, is it an architectural landmark, and part of a baroque landscape that’s quintessentially London. Every visit is a discovery, where the senses truly come alive.

A unique music venue in central London and a masterpiece of English Baroque architecture, St John’s was designed and built by Thomas Archer. 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.
