On the 12 May, we will be celebrating St Pancras Festival with a sung Mass at 7 pm. Bishop Robert Ladds will be the principal celebrant, and the professional choir will be singing Mozart. Refreshments will follow at 8 pm. Please do join us on this special day in the life of our church.
A few days later, on the 15 May, we are excited to welcome Dan Cruickshank for a special festival lecture on “Lost Monuments”. Tickets can be purchased online. We expect this to be a very busy event, so there may not be tickets available on the door.
Dan Cruickshank is an architectural historian, broadcaster, author, and long-time campaigner for heritage. In the 1970s, Cruickshank was a founding member of Save Britain’s Heritage, which successfully campaigned to rescue East London’s Georgian houses, including in Spitalfields, where he still lives. Cruickshank is active in The Georgian Group, is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, and regularly writes and presents television programmes on the history of British and world architecture. He will talk about London’s great monument to the railway age – the ill-fated Euston Arch – and current proposals to rebuild it. The talk will be an illustrated journey through this and other examples of recreated ancient buildings.
