Sing carols at St George the Martyr, Borough

If your're looking for an atmospheric Christmas carol service this evening then head along to St George the Maryr in Southwark. The third church to stand on its site at the heart of an ancient parish, the current St George's was designed by John Price and completed in 1736 as part of the Commission for Building Fifty New Churches.

Surrounded by offices and homes, the church is a venue for regular worship and lunchtime music recitals, as well as plenty of community activities. It is known for its associations with Marshalsea Prison, which once stood nearby, where Charles Dickens' father was imprisoned. The church was used by Dickens in Little Dorrit, and the east window features a representation of Dorrit.
