What is Proms at St Jude's
Proms at St Jude’s is a world class festival of music and culture taking place each June in Hampstead Garden Suburb, London NW11.
We offer evening concerts with top national and international artists; lunchtime free of charge music recitals; a LitFest weekend with best-selling authors; an extensive programme of children and family oriented musical events and activities, a wide selection of Heritage Walks; a stand-up comedy night; a buzzing licensed refreshment marquee; and a LitFest café with delicious home-made cakes.
We give all our surplus funds to charity. Three pounds in four go to Toynbee Hall to help disadvantaged young people. The rest goes to the North London Hospice, which provides the best of life, at the end of life, for everyone. The hospice offers palliative care and a wide range of support to people across the London boroughs of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey.
Our music programme is designed to cater for a wide range of tastes, with a focus on classical and jazz. We attract world class artists and are proud to support rising talent in our daytime concerts.
We have an active education programme, promoting live classical music to children and young people.
We offer events accessible to all, regardless of age, financial means or health.
We promote environmental responsibility through recycling, careful selection of materials, processes and procedures.
The festival brings together the local community and attracts many visitors from other parts of the country and overseas. We rely on sponsorship and Friends for our success and are always delighted to discuss ideas with new supporters.
Our founder is Susie Gregson MBE, who established Proms with others in 1993. Since then, we have provided entertainment for thousands of people and raised and donated over £1 million for charity.
