Come and witness the beauty of music and song by candlelight in the historic setting of St Mark’s, the Lord Mayor’s Chapel, now the only municipally-owned church in Britain.

Nearly 700 years old, the chapel’s origins date back to 1220 when it was founded by the Abbey of St Augustine (now Bristol Cathedral) as a monastic foundation and a place of hospitality and welcome to those visiting and travelling though the city of Bristol. Amongst others, the chapel opened its doors to the fleeing Huguenots between 1687 and 1722, the year that it became the official place of worship of the Mayor and Bristol Corporation (City Council).

Over the centuries, the chapel has known many guises from being an almonry and housing song birds to providing a restful place in a busy city.
