About the venue

St. Stephen's Church is at the heart of South Kensington's bustling tourist and museum district. For nearly 150 years it has served the needs of the local community and the visitors from all over the world who come to stay in this fashionable area of the capital. Built in the 1860’s in the Gothic Style, St. Stephen’s is known for being one of the best remaining churches by the 'rogue' Victorian architect, Joseph Peacock and at the time it was completed was the grandest of a group of four new churches being in established in the up and coming neighbourhood of South Kensington. Its impressive interior offers a wonderful place to enjoy a Bach to Baby concert, and if you’re feeling brave enough, there’s always time to check out the dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum, just a stone’s throw away. Bach to Brachiosaurus, maybe?
