In an earlier post, I remarked that many people may be surprised by the fact that Canary Wharf has a quite extensive Arts, Drama and Music calendar.
The highlight of the Music season is the Jazz festival which features established acts and up and coming talent from the Jazz World.

It is London’s largest free jazz festival and takes place  this weekend with a variety of styles from Jazz-funk, Latin, big band, soul, instrumental, and folk – jazz .
