The 20-concert season includes a mix of stars, special events, new collaborations and young talent. Cellist Ana Carla Maza combining Catalan flamenco and Cuban rhythms, Penguin Café leader Arthur Jeffes brings his new trio Penguini (his take on "little penguins"), British/Bahraini trumpeter Yazz Ahmed joins forces with vibes star Ralph Wyld and stunning South African cellist Abel Selaocoe returns with kora master Seckou Keita.

The line up gets even more international, with Syrian qanun player Maya Youssef and her band, Soumik Datta playing sarod, Ukrainian harpist Alina Bzhezhinska leading her HipHarp Quartet, BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year saxophonist Xhosa Cole celebrating Thelonious Monk, and so much more.

All shows are free at 5.30pm. All shows are now fully booked, but some tickets will be released here before the show. Some tickets will also be available on the door at 5pm, half an hour before the show begins
