Founded in 1962, the City of London Festival is an annual arts festival that takes place in the City of London, England, over two to three weeks in June and July. The Festival is strongly geared towards classical music, but also offers a programme that includes jazz, world music, opera, film screenings, lectures and guided tours. Performances are usually held within local venues including some of London’s ornate churches, St Paul’s Cathedral and Livery Company Halls. Part of the programme is educational, which involves local primary and secondary schools in a variety of culturally enriching projects showcased within the main Festival programme.
