Things to do in London

Here we keep a carefully collated list of events happening in and around London


EFG London Jazz Festival at the Barbican

London's finest jazz festival brings musicians from all over the globe to the capital, from esteemed jazz masters to cutting-edge bands making a stir. The festival comprises hundreds of gigs across the city and sees jazz popping up everywhere, from concert halls to street corners. The Barbican will be hosting a gig most nights, alongside free shows in the foyer. 


Christmas at Kew

Making for a delightful stroll after darkness falls, Kew Gardens' annual festive celebrations will include a magical new winter trail - complete with a host of all-new installations, such as laser projections and illuminated arches - as well as familiar favourites. Look out for the twinkling Tunnel of Light and tree canopies lit up in colour, while the Palm House Pond will come alive with moving jets of light dancing to Christmas classics.
