JUST SHARE PANEL DISCUSSION - GOING BALLISTIC
Tuesday 21 September, 6.30pm at All Hallows and online

The UK government is planning to increase the number of nuclear warheads kept in its stockpile, which could see a rise from approx 225 to 260 in the years ahead. After nearly three decades of nuclear reductions and disarmament advocacy in the UK, this is an abrupt shift and raises many questions both domestically and for the international community. Join us for an important debate on this issue and, if you are unable to attend in person, you can follow the discussion on livestream at www.ahbtt.org.uk/live-stream.

ST MARTIN'S VOICES IN CONCERT at All Hallows by the Tower, Thursday 21 October, 7-8pm
The night before lockdown in March 2020, members of St Martin’s Voices gathered in a dimly lit St Martin-in-the-Fields for one final time to record the music for a service led by the Archbishop of Canterbury, broadcast to the nation on the BBC. The service opened with the hymn ‘Lord of all hopefulness’. This hour-long concert reflects on themes of love, hope, joy and peace drawn from this much-loved hymn, and includes music drawn from over four centuries of choral masterpieces, including works by Thomas Tallis, Hubert Parry, John Stainer, Amy Beach, Ola Gjeilo and James MacMillan. Tickets £10 or under 16’s £5 - book online HERE.
