About the venue

Join us for a Bach to Baby concert in the beautiful Christ Church Parish of the Isle of Dogs which was consecrated in 1857. The church is an integral part of the local community and is dedicated to promoting inclusivity and creativity though a variety of programmes aimed at children, young people, as well as families. Christ Church is just a short stroll from Greenwich through the famous Greenwich Foot Tunnel and also very close to the buzzing Canary Wharf where you can stop for a spot of lunch or some retail therapy! If you're feeling adventurous, why not take a trip to the family favourite Mudchute Farm, which is less than a ten minute walk away!
