EFG London Jazz Festival

The EFG London Jazz Festival began way back in the 1970s in Camden known as the Camden Jazz week. Now produced by Serious, it has engineered a transition that saw the evolution of a London Jazz Festival in 1992.Taking the mix of international and British artists - and a commitment to education activity - that had been at the heart of the Camden weeks, the new Festival began to spread its wings, with the intention of celebrating the place of jazz in a city that was becoming at ease with its rich cultural diversity, and drawing in the venues across London that present the music, week in, week out, throughout the year.The EFG London Jazz Festival take place during mid November and is the highlight for all Londoners and the jazz fans calendar.
