Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories at the Chapel

Rudyard Kipling is one of our best-known, late-Victorian poets and storytellers. He spent the first years of his life in India, remembering it in later years as almost a paradise and as inspiration for his treasured Just So Stories. Join us under our glorious golden ceiling to hear a recording of these charming tales.
