St Paul’s Church dates back the 1630s, and was the first entirely new church to be built in London since the reformation. It is widely known as the Actors’ Church due to its long-standing connections with local theatres, including the Theatre Royal on Drury Lane and the Covent Garden Theatre (now the Royal Opera House). In Samuel Pepys’ diary, the church is mentioned as the venue of London’s first ever Punch and Judy show.
