Reception & Supper - Christ Church Spitalfields

Wednesday 26th September 2018

Start: 7.30 p.m. | Finish: 10.30 p.m.

For the Master's second Black Tie Dinner, he has secured Hawksmoor's masterpiece, Christ Church Spitalfields. Completed in 1729, it had become almost derelict by 1957. In 2004 Christ Church was restored to its appearance c1750, on the basis of the surviving archaeological and documentary evidence. The restoration of 1976-2004 revealed one of the most complex and sumptuous of Hawksmoor's interiors in London. In this wonderfully atmospheric setting of the magnificent Nave, exuding grandeur with clerestory windows, mezzanine galleries and a central hall accented with Tuscan columns, the Master invites you to join him at a sparkling reception followed by a three-course dinner with wine. To fully appreciate the splendour of these awe-inspiring surroundings the Master has asked his guest, Alderman Sir Andrew Parmley, Lord Mayor of the City of London 2016 - 2017, to play the Richard Bridge organ, the best-preserved example of Bridge's work as well as being the largest and most significant of his instruments. It is unequivocally an instrument of European importance, and now restored is seen as one of the most significant survivals in this country from the years before 1840. The church has, exceptionally, granted Sir Andrew permission to play, a rare honour! This event follows our welcome ceremony for new members, who may wish to continue their celebrations by attending this wonderful event.
