I was heading towards Covent Garden yesterday and noticed a forlorn looking church near Neal Street and wandered over to have a look. It was closed and in need of repair, but a sign on the front was advertising much goodness inside.

Indeed, it is the Swiss Chuch in England – and later this week they are having a festival of all things Swiss and Christmassy.

It is on Thursday evening, and Saturday afternoon – and I shall try to wander along on Saturday.

A bit of blurb from their website:

The Swiss Church is holding its traditional Swiss Christmas Fair on Thursday, 15 November, from 6pm – 10pm and on Saturday, 17 November, from 11am – 4pm. Come and enjoy traditional Swiss refreshments, Raclette (on Thursday only), Tartlets de fromage, Wienerli with choucroute, Buendnerfleisch and cheeses. There will be many Swiss goods for sale, too.

They are also fund-raising to repair the Church building which was considered quite modern when it was originally built in 1855. The building is now listed.
