The service is held at the site of S.Charles's martyrdom, The Banqueting House in Whitehall, London. Wreath laying and prayers near the place of the martyrdom are offered at 11.40 a.m. followed by High Mass and sermon at noon within the Banqueting House itself.
The Society's relics of S.Charles are placed upon the altar for the Mass and may be viewed after the service. A choir, usually from King's College, London sings at the Mass. The Banqueting House is where S.Charles was kept for several hours on the day of his decollation. It is a magnificent setting for the Mass: the architect having been Inigo Jones and the ceiling adorned by the great paintings of Rubens. There is an exhibition on the ground floor describing the events of 30th January, 1649.
Organised by the The Society of King Charles the Martyr.
