St Bartholomew the Great is London’s oldest parish church. 

At the heart of the Smithfield area, with its hospital, pubs, restaurants, and market, is a church built when Henry I, son of William the Conqueror, was King of England. It survived the Great Fire of 1666 and the bombs dropped in two World Wars.

Today the Church has a reputation not only for wonderful Romanesque architecture, but also for traditional formal worship, marvellous music and intelligent preaching. It has also appeared in a series of award-winning films including Four Weddings and a Funeral, Shakespeare in Love, The End of the Affair, Amazing Grace, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, and The Other Boleyn Girl.

Bob Porter is the Artistic Director of the Brandenburg Choral Festival of London. He is a Freeman of the City of London and is passionate about choral music, cricket, red wine and jazz.
