Apologies for an error in this post.
Our Welsh Mass on 30th March is open to all, but the reception after the Mass has to be ticket only (for Choir members, Band of the Welsh Guards and Bishops) because of a limit on numbers placed by our sponsors.
Sorry for posting information intended for Choir members.
Hoping you will help us fill the church on 30th March and raise the roof with our Welsh hymns!
Do we have to book Anthony,?
Thankls for your enquiry.
No need to book, but we expect all 600 seats in the church to be taken by 7 pm, when t he Band of the Welsh Guards plays for 25 minutes before the start of the Mass.
So get there early to get a seat !
All the best,
P.S. Nearest tube station to Spanish Place is Bond Street
