Proms at St Jude’s summer festival takes shape

Cheryl Kuczynski on this year’s festival in Hampstead Garden Suburb

The Proms at St Jude’s Music and Literature Festival brings a jam-packed programme of great music, literature, comedy, heritage walks and fun family events to the people of North London and beyond. 

The festival runs from 24 June to 2 July this year and the concert programme includes classical music, jazz and Broadway hits from musical theatre. Proms always has a great Saturday night comedy line-up and this year is no exception. LitFest authors include Valentine Low, Henry Dimbleby and Justin Webb, with more authors to be announced and The Heritage Walks are always popular and sell out fast. 

Tickets for Proms at St Jude’s are now on sale so go to to check out the programme and book your seats right away – you know it makes sense! 

Proms is organised almost entirely by local volunteers to raise money for Toynbee Hall and the North London Hospice.
