The Actors' Church

Bedford Street, London, WC2E 9ED


St Paul's Covent Garden church is an Anglian Christian church. The church has a deep-rooted connection to the theatre, with many West End playhouses nearby: Theatre Royal Drury Lane, the Royal Opera House, and more.

The Actors' Church is the resting place for influential West End figures. There's also memorials to theatre personalities, including Charlie Chaplin, Noel Coward, Gracie Fields, Vivien Leigh, Ivor Novello, Barbara Windsor, Diana Rigg, and the My Fair Lady lyricist, Alan Jay Lerner.

The Actors' Church also boasts an in-hosue professional theatre company. Every summer, Iris Theatre present outdoor plays of Shakespeare classics.
