This is the 25th year of the Proms at St Jude's festival of music and culture. This community festival for the family offers daily concerts from national and internationally renowned artists, free lunchtime recitals, a Literary Festival and Heritage Walks.

Proms a St Jude’s is a significant and long-term supporter of Toynbee Hall’s flagship youth programme Make It!

Heritage walks

Each day during the eight day festival, expert guides will be leading a series of Heritage Walks to explore some of the City's history and culture. Tickets must be booked in advance.

All surplus funds from the festival go to charity. Three pounds in every four pounds raised go towards Make it! our in-school mentoring programme that aims to engage vulnerable children at risk of social and academic exclusion.
