We are back with the complete experience of living London to the fullest, with a city-wide selection of venues, clubs, partnerships as well as creative engagement projects, talks and freestages, whilst retaining our commitment to our nationwide and global outreach through our digital work.   
 
This first announcement is a taster of the inspirational identity of the festival, with more announcements to come around orchestral music and jazz, weekend strands around UK funk and African music, a music and community engagement partnership with Becontree Forever, concerts at the Barbican and a vast creative engagement programme and other collaborations from the UK jazz scene.  
We are looking forward to greeting our audiences right across London and worldwide.
