Cultural and Community Events
St Andrew's Rugby
St Andrew's Church is not just a religious building but also a cultural centre. As a church we are committed to offering a wide range of cultural experiences for the whole family. All of us who live or work in Rugby are aware that the town centre faces many challenges. St Andrew's Church seeks to be part of the solution by maintaining and promoting our historic, iconic building as a place to visit, attend a concert, enjoy an art exhibition and more.
St Andrew's Church is set within a peaceful garden, which contains a Garden of Remembrance and is well used by people seeking a quiet place to eat their lunch or as a venue for the Rugby Food and Drink Festival and more.
Free Lunchtime Recitals every Tuesday. Click here to view the diary of recitals.
