The London Jazz Festival is one of the world’s major jazz events and one of the essential London attractions for lovers of jazz. The festival takes place over ten days each November across the city, taking in a range of venues from small clubs like the world-famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, through to major arts venues like the Royal Festival Hall and the Barbican Arts Centre.
The London Jazz Festival is held in conjunction with BBC Radio 3, one of the UK’s national radio stations. The festival features talents from across the globe, ranging from up-and-coming acts to world-famous stars of the genre.
Admission to the various attractions varies according to the event, although those jazz-loving London tourists that are on a budget will be pleased to read that some events are free.
