Over the year they bring together choirs and vocal ensembles of different shapes and sizes, and from every musical background — classical and jazz, a cappella or accompanied, gospel, male voice, choral scholars, community choirs, and a whole lot more besides!

Centred geographically and spiritually around St Martin-in-the-Fields, other venues include St Sepulchre-without-Newgate, Temple Church, Corpus Christi Maiden Lane, Royal Courts of Justice, National Portrait Gallery, St James's Sussex Gardens and many more.

THE LONDON ANTIQUE RUG & TEXTILE FAIR
22 – 27 January 2019
Battersea Park, London
The London Antique Rug & Textile Art Fair (LARTA) was launched in 2011 and is the only specialist fair dedicated to the appreciation of antique rug and textile art. The event brings together quality decorative pieces and interesting collectors' items presented by some of the UK and Europe’s most dynamic and knowledgeable dealers. The scope of interest is broad, and includes weavings from the Far East, Central Asia, Persia, India, Turkey, the Caucasus as well as from Europe and Africa, and from all periods up to the early 20th century in Europe. Clients include collectors, interior decorators and designers, private buyers and international dealers.
The quality of the exhibitors at LARTA guarantees an event of high artistic significance and cultural merit. Many of our dealers exhibit regularly at important international antiques fairs and specialist symposiums. Several have written expert articles and books, travelled extensively to learn about the material culture and traditions of the weaving regions, and celebrated this extensive subject through exhibitions in their galleries.
