About the venue

Situated on a site at the northern tip of Highbury Fields, Christ Church was completed and consecrated in 1848 designed by architect Thomas Allom. Among other fine details inside are gorgeous stained glass windows in the chancel and north and south transepts. The church is a bustling hub for family-focussed activities and events, including our Bach to Baby concerts and on a sunny day, you can enjoy a run-around and picnic in Highbury Fields after the concert for a perfect day out.
