Proms at St Jude’s is a world-class festival of music, literature and culture taking place each June in iconic surroundings in North London.
Our music programme is designed to cater for a wide range of tastes, with a focus on classical and jazz. Top fiction and non-fiction authors speak at our LitFest. We offer guided Heritage Walks around the Hampstead area and in central London. There’s late-night stand-up comedy too.
We have an active education programme, promoting live classical music to children and young people.
Access is an important part of our credo and we aim to offer events available to all, regardless of age, financial means or health. We also do our best to promote environmental sustainability and diversity. The festival brings together the community and attracts many visitors from other parts of the country. 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 over £1 million for charity.
We give all our surplus funds to charity and have extremely low staff costs. Three pounds in four go to Toynbee Hall to help disadvantaged young people. The rest goes to the North London Hospice, which helps people in the London boroughs of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey to live with a potentially life-limiting illness.
