St John's Smith Square  Built in 1728, a beautiful venue for music in the heart of Westminster, London. Very occasionally used as a Church.

Meanwhile, downstairs... Rădulescu's Sound Icons are in and mid-tuning & set-up. Hear them live today at 2.00pm (it's FREE to attend) and throughout the weekend with @joebatesmusic @zoemartlew #OccupyThePianos #soundicons #icons #radulescu #crypt #sjss #pianos #festival #pianofestival

The Crypt (home of Footstool Restaurant) at St John's Smith Square was never used in the traditional way and instead stored beer and wine. A burial ground on Horseferry Road, now known as St John's Gardens, was consecrated for the church's use between 1731 and 1853. It reopened as a public garden in 1885 and remains so today. @citywestminster @openhouselondon @leafi_uk #westminster #stjohnssmithsquare #stjohnsgardens #parksandgardens #londonparks #history #lunchspot #spring #inbloom

Fantastic to welcome so many singers to our stage this morning for a workshop with Tenebrae. On Thursday we will have a choir of over 100 performing in this year's Come & Sing Messiah, also conducted by Nigel Short. #comeandsing #participation #communitymusic #messiah #handel #workshop #masterclass #scratchperformance #allwelikesheep .
