LFCCM 2020: 9 May – 17 May
The London Festival of Contemporary Church Music was founded in 2002 with the aim of showcasing contemporary liturgical music in both service and concert. Based at St Pancras Parish Church, London, the LFCCM has grown to include more than sixty events in venues across London and beyond, dozens of composers, hundreds of performers and thousands of audience members, both live and online, showcasing the very best in contemporary liturgical music for choir and organ.
The next Festival, LFCCM 2020, takes place from Saturday 9 May and runs until Sunday 17 May. A complete schedule of concerts, services, recitals and other events will be published shortly.
The Festival Committee is closely monitoring the coronavirus pandemic. We are evaluating what actions we need to take to provide the safest and most satisfactory outcomes for all of our dedicated supporters and participants, including our partner churches, composers, and performers. The Festival will follow government and church guidelines as they are released, and this may affect some or all of our planned programme for LFCCM 2020. Please check this page regularly for updates.
