London's finest Jazz festival brings musicians from all over the globe into the capital - from jazz masters flexing their chops to cutting edge bands making a stir.

The EFG London Jazz Festival – presented by our Associate Producer Serious – comprises hundreds of gigs across the city and sees jazz popping up everywhere, from concert halls to street corners. 

We're back in the Hall for 2021 with live performances lined up from a host of exciting musicians.
