The series is a partnership with Guildhall Art Gallery using themes from the recent rehang of their collection. Join us for a guided tour of the Guildhall Art Gallery collection, as part of the Discover & explore series, which will take place on 21 July at 1.10pm. Meet in the main entrance of the Guildhall Art Gallery.

To coincide with its 15th anniversary, Guildhall Art Gallery has undergone a complete rehang of its permanent collection. Many of the works now on display have not been shown before at the Gallery. The collection of the Victorian paintings demonstrates changing attitudes to fine art in the 19th century. Artists turned their attention to the reality of modern life as their main inspiration, With its focus on everyday subjects, such as home, work, leisure, love, beauty, faith, and imagination, the new Victorian re-hang offers surprising relevance to life in the 21st century and challenges pre-conceptions about Victorian art being ‘dated’.

The Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields have an essential musical role at this great church. Every year twelve scholars are appointed to sing regular services while also gaining concert experience, benefiting from an extensive training in all aspects of sacred and secular choral music. They are led by the Director of Music at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Andrew Earis.
