Make way for the regal resonance of the French horn! From the soothing tones of Schubert’s Ave Maria to Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde, we’ll have as many twists and turns in store as the horn itself. And of course, the conch and the hosepipe as you’ve never heard it before!

Doors open at 10.30am. Concert lasts for about an hour.

Carnival of the Animals

Featuring Charis Hanning, piano & Matthew McCombie, piano

Come one, come all to see the animals big and small.

All that, plus your favourite nursery rhymes to finish, of course!

About the venue

St Thomas' Church is a vibrant monument which sits comfortably between Streatham, Tooting, Balham, and Clapham. The historic building was erected in the mid-nineteenth century and though damage was wrought to both the church and its parishioners across two world wars, over one hundred years later it still stands. The beautiful architecture and warm atmosphere provide the perfect location for Bach to Baby's concert series and we're excited to become part of the surrounding community.
