About the Event

**Wheelchair access to St George's Bloosmbury**

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, the disabled access lift that grants access to the church is currently out of action, and it is not possible to get it repaired in time for the concert on Saturday. Therefore, regrettably, the church is not accessible by wheelchair users for our concert. Please accept our apologies and get in touch if you have any questions regarding access.
