For three weeks each midsummer, the City of London Festival animates the unique buildings and outdoor spaces of the City with an extensive artistic programme ranging across many kinds of music, street performance, visual arts, film, walks and talks, more than 50 ticketed performances and over 150 free events outdoors.

Inaugurated in 1962 to revitalise the cultural life of the City, the City of London Festival has established itself as one of the UK's leading arts events.

Festival performances range from large-scale orchestral concerts in St Paul's Cathedral to intimate chamber recitals in the City's beautiful but hidden livery halls, and from innovative aerial acrobatics to jazz bands in the Guildhall Yard.
