Event description

Description

Why was a teenaged Anglo-Saxon king immortalised as a saint and martyr? Which is which: Blackfriars, Greyfriars, Whitefriars? Why did the City dedicate four times as many churches to St Botolph as St George? (Who was St Botolph?) Why does St Dunstan carry tongs? Why was St Mildred grateful to a deer? Who is the patron saint of environmental cleaners? Why St Mary Axe, Abchurch, Aldermary and Aldermanbury? Or St Benet Fink, Gracechurch and Sherehog? Who or what is or are All Hallows? And what about St Sepulchre: Is that even a thing? Join the Friends of the City Churches on All Saints’ Day to explore the stories behind the patrons of the City of London churches, from St Audoen to St Vedast alias Foster.

Tea and cake after the talk; tickets available on the door.
