About Us

Spitalfields Music: changing lives and aspirations through music in London’s East End

We bring together world class artists and local people in one of the most unusual and creative corners of London. Drawing inspiration from our area, we produce two annual music festivals and run creative music projects throughout the year in the local community. In an area often seen to be full of challenges, we focus on music and its power to bring people together, change perspectives, engage the body, emotions and intellect and to spread energy.
Since 1976, we’ve been putting music at the heart of Tower Hamlets.
