Priority booking for Festival Friends opens on 8 April, with general booking commencing on 15 April.

This year the Festival's eclectic programme promises something to please every taste, from acclaimed comedy by the hilarious Richard Herring and Katherine Ryan to classical performances by the sensational London Symphony Orchestra; from jazz by Clare Teal and Julian Joseph to a whole host of free family-friendly outdoor performances which will be taking over the City streets from 22 June - 17 July.

Seoul in the City

Internationally famed artists from South Korea will light up the venues and streets of the City of London this year. Highlights will include pianist Sunwook Kim, performances by Seoul's top B-boy crews and a unique Anglo-Korean concert of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony in St Paul’s Cathedral.
