Volunteers wanted

The EFG London Jazz Festival is seeking volunteers to work with us on the delivery of this year’s Festival. We are London’s biggest city-wide music festival and bring together established stars and emerging talent, reflecting the traditions of jazz and illustrating its breadth and depth. Our programme is made up of premieres, commissions, one-off collaborations, talks, family events, workshops and a fantastic Jazz for Free series. There are over 250 concerts in over 50 venues taking the Festival to venues right across London.
