Marked “one of the best jazz festivals in the world” according to the Guardian, London’s Jazz Festival returns to mark its 21st birthday from 15th to 24th November. Consisting of more than 250 shows over a 10-day period, the festival takes place in a variety of beautiful venues across the city, including London’s hub of cultural arts, the hip Southbank Centre.
The festival offers a perfect mix of classic artists who have helped to write the history of jazz, and new, exciting talent shaping the future of the genre. The London Jazz Festival will be showcasing amazing artists from all over the world, including some of the very best talent the UK has to offer. The event does much to showcase the city’s network of different cultures and communities, all of which are united by the electric atmosphere.
This event is not to be missed by all ardent jazz fans. Highlights of this year’s programme include the opening night gala, Stan Sulzmann’s Neon Orchestra, and Madeleine Peyroux. For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit www.londonjazzfestival.org.uk .
