In aid of Quintessentially Foundation and The Firefly Project - a remarkable initiative supporting children & young people in London.


What is the Fayre
of St. James’s?

Named the charity Christmas event of the year in London, the Fayre of St. James’s delivers a magical, star-studded evening of performances, readings, carols, and Christmas cheer.

This year, we will be welcoming 500 guests into the breathtaking enclaves of St. James’s Church, a venue that has seen performances from so many incredible stars over its 11 year history, such as Emeli Sande, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Craig David, Ellie Goulding and many more.

Quintessentially Foundation & The Firefly Project

Around 40% of London's children live in poverty, the highest child poverty rate in England.

Quintessentially Foundation is a charitable foundation set up to tackle child poverty and the limitations it places on the futures of children and young people. We do this by finding, funding and supporting small frontline charities well-positioned to make a big difference.

Small frontline charities often have some of the best solutions to society's biggest problems. However, they are often overlooked and underfunded. So, through our flagship programme, ‘The Firefly Project', we scale our charity partners’ successful interventions for young people, tackling child poverty in all forms, by providing the charities with:

Unrestricted funding - so that our partner charities can invest in increasing their internal capacity and prepare for growth.

Tailored organisational support – ensuring they develop the proper infrastructure for their model to increase the number of young people they support and optimise the quality of their impact.

Untapped networks and connections – so that they can have more supporters amplifying their cause and, most notably so that they can continue to grow sustainably once our funding ends.
