THAMES Big Band is one of the many ensembles at THAMES’ Saturday Music Centre. THAMES works closely with schools and cultural organisations to provide regular quality music and arts education opportunities for all children and young people in Tower Hamlets.


NYJO’s mission is to promote jazz as an exciting, engaging and inspirational art form through world-class performances and education work. NYJO’s weekly Academy is based in Tower Hamlets and this gig will feature performances from NYJO Academy Jazz Ensemble and NYJO London, led by Gemma Buckenham & Phil Meadows. The groups feature some of London’s most talented young musicians, playing everything from big band classics to their own compositions.
