Evensong and presentation of the Torchères

Evensong at St Paul’s Cathedral Tuesday 26th February 2019 to include the presentation of two specially commissioned torchères by the Company to the Cathedral.

When: Tue 26 Feb 2019 17:00 – 19:00
Where: St. Paul’s Cathedral, St. Paul’s Churchyard, London EC4M 8AD, UK (map)

To commemorate the Company’s involvement with the restoration of the bells of the St Paul’s Cathedral, Master in Turning Liveryman Stuart Mortimer, was commissioned to make a pair of prayer torchères for presentation to the Cathedral. The presentation will take place during Evensong, which commences at 5.00 pm, on Tuesday 26th February. It is hoped that as many Company members will be able to attend, what will be for the Company, a very special service, but all members of the public are also very welcome to attend. Choral Evensong is one of the most-loved services at St Paul’s, usually sung by the Cathedral Choir.
