Eac year in January the City holds a service at St. Michael Cornhill. This is a church that is famous for its organ concerts that have taken place every Monday lunchtime since 1919. The music and singing at this year's service was wonderful, and the sermon by the political sketch writer Quentin Letts very witty and topical. The church was packed to the rafters, and at the end of the service, most people made their way through the alleyways criss-crossing Cornhill and Threadneedle Street to the magnificent Drapers Hall where a meal was being provided. Drapers Hall was used for the film 'The King's Speech', and it was possible to wander through the splendid rooms, chatting to people from all walks of life and enjoying curry and rice, followed by a delicious hot dessert with pears, bananas and toffee and cream. There was plenty of wine being served too.
