Carol Service at St Vedast-alias-Foster & Reception at Dion

Tuesday 18th December 2018

Start: 6.30 pm | Finish: 8.30 pm

This event has passed

The Master has chosen Saint Vedast-alias Foster for the Guild's carol service this year. The Parish of St Vedast is known from the 12th century, and the church is traditionally claimed to have been established by 1170. It has been altered, enlarged and restored many times and probably rebuilt at least twice, the last time by Christopher Wren, after the Great Fire of London in 1666. Having been completely burnt out during the Blitz of World War II, the church is now beautifully restored. The choir of St Vedast, under the musical direction of Jo Ramadan, will be accompanied by the organist who will play the marvellous Harris and Byfield organ, dating from 1731. Jo Ramadan began his music studies as a chorister at Chapel Royal St. James Palace and studied at Durham and the Royal College of Music. He promises a wonderful service! After the service we will cross the road to Dion at Paternoster House were we will enjoy a glass of wine and canapes before heading off full of the Christmas spirit.
