We are London’s biggest city-wide music festival and bring together established stars and emerging talent, reflecting the traditions of jazz and illustrating its breadth and depth. Our programme is made up of premieres, commissions, one-off collaborations, talks, family events, workshops and a programme of fantastic free events.
