The London Festival of Baroque Music pays another visit to Westminster Abbey for a performance of Monteverdi’s magnificent Vespers of 1610.


We regret that this performance will not be able to take place in Westminster Abbey on 19th May as scheduled. We are currently working with our partners at the London Festival of Baroque Music to try and arrange rescheduling of the concert at a later date and we will publish details here and on the LFBM website shortly. If you have already booked tickets, you will be contacted in the coming days by staff from our box office services provider St John’s Smith Square with information regarding the process for refunds or if applicable moving your booking to the rescheduled date. Given the unprecedented circumstances and the large number of events being cancelled or postponed, please note that it may take a few days for box office staff to contact all ticket holders so we would be most grateful for your patience and understanding in the meantime.

It’s very hard not to be enthusiastic working at the Abbey. If this place doesn’t make you smile I don’t know what will.
