Time Out Says

St James’s Piccadilly is the only Wren church outside the City to hold free lunchtime recitals (Mon, Wed, Fri at 1.10pm; suggested donation £3.50) and also offers regular evening concerts of all musical varieties. It was first opened to the public in 1648 and has several serious claims to fame – William Blake was baptised here in 1757, Leopold Stokowski was choirmaster from 1902 until 1905 before he became a world-famous conductor and the poet Robert Graves had his wedding here in 1918. The church has a café attached and arts and crafts markets are held at the church from Wednesday to Saturday, with a food market on Monday and Tuesday.
