The annual City of London Festival returns with a host of events in some of the capital's grandest settings.
There are orchestral concerts in St. Paul's Cathedral, intimate chamber recitals in the Livery Halls - the age-old HQ of the City's trading bodies, rarely open to the public - and jazz gigs in skyscrapers, including within the Sky Garden at the top of the "walkie talkie" building.
Among the highlights this year are performances of Haydn's The Creation by the London Symphony Orchestra; and Monteverdi’s Vespers by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment - both within the imposing setting of St Paul's Cathedral.
The popular Bowler Hat, a pop-up venue in Paternoster Square, returns for a second year with a variety of kid's theatre, stand-up comedy, circus and cabaret.
This year also sees a celebration of music from Singapore, with a range of events and performances.
