GEORGIAN GROUP TOUR
PLUS ORGAN RECITAL AT
PETER’S CHURCH, VAUXHALL
19 November 2014
5 – 8pm
or concert only from 6.50pm
Come to a special Organ Recital at St Peter’s Church, Vauxhall, a hidden gem of Gothic revival architecture, designed by John Loughborough Pearson in 1863. To celebrate its 150th birthday, the church is holding this concert to assist the TC Lewis Organ appeal to restore one of Britain’s few remaining examples of an original Lewis organ.
The organist is Daniel Moult “one of the finest organists of our time” (The Organ), who will be playing works by Bach, Handel, Mozart, Elgar and Stanford.
Before the recital there will be a tour and talk. The visit commences at 5pm, meeting outside Brunswick House, Bondway, opposite Vauxhall bus station (close by Vauxhall tube station). Brunswick house is now the home of the London Architectural Salvage Company (LASSCO).
The visit includes a talk by historian Penelope Corfield and also a tour of Jonathan Tyers’ house with architectural historian Will Palin. Tyers was the founding impresario of Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens and his house, which retains most of its original Georgian features, is not normally open to the public. (It is now a retreat for C. of E. clergy.)
Tickets cost £40 per person and include:
- wine and nibbles
- tour of the church
- talk by Penelope Corfield on Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens
- tour of Jonathan Tyer’s house
- seats in the choir stalls for the organ recital, from 6.50 pm – 8.00pm.
