About St Bride’s
St Bride’s Church is one of the most famous and historic churches in Central London. It was all but destroyed during the Great Fire of London in 1666 and was rebuilt almost a decade later by celebrated architect Sir Christopher Wren.
Located in London’s Fleet Street St Bride’s is known as the Journalist’s Church, offering a spiritual space to all those who work in the media. The church has amazing acoustics and will be the perfect venue for SRUK’s first concert, where people can enjoy and feel close to the music and musicians.
