On Thursday 13th June, at 6.30pm, we shall be celebrating the completion of our conservation and building works with a solemn choral Mass. The Bishop of Fulham will preside and preach, and the choirs of Sussex House and Caldicott will sing Durufle’s Missa Cum Jubilo. All are welcome.
“The Missa Cum Jubilo had its first British performance at St Mary Magdalene’s in 1968, under Durufle himself. We shall also be using a setting of the Lord’s Prayer which he said he wrote for St Mary Magdalene’s. There will be drinks after this Mass.”
Launching the new venue: Grand Junction at St Mary Magdalene’s, Rowington Close, Paddington, London W2 5TF on Friday the 31st of May 2019
IMDL´s 5th annual Hooley to raise the profile of their work and funds towards hosting year round activity (including the newly rebranded annual October Festival of traditional Irish music, song and dance ´Return to London Town´.)
This year, IMDL (Irish Music and Dance in London) are very excited about launching a brand new arts venue ´Grand Junction´ at the newly refurbished, beautiful St Mary Magdalene´s Church, Paddington – originally built in 1865 as they host their annual ´Irish Hooley´ with the legendary Kilfenora Céilí Band in concert plus support from ´The Trad Gathering´. There will also be music in the crypt at various points during the evening with a chance to catch up for a chat and a drink during intervals, and as always … there will be the Grand Draw.
