    Tomorrow's Warriors instrumental

    Join the greatest London jazz happening in a generation at the biggest gathering of Warriors, including Nubya Garcia, Moses Boyd, Shabaka Hutchings, ESKA and more.

    Celebrate a unique chapter in UK jazz history, an explosion of music, talent and vibrancy, driven by current and former members of Tomorrow’s Warriors.

    By being part of this special night, help raise vital funds to support future generations of jazz talent and keep this unique musical initiative open, free and inclusive to all.

    Featuring live music from Warriors past and present, with special guests including Nubya Garcia, Moses Boyd, Theon Cross, ESKA, Binker Golding, Denys Baptiste, Zara McFarlane, Camilla George and CHERISE, joined by Gary Crosby, Shabaka Hutchings and many more of the organisation’s award-winning alumni.

    This once-in-a-lifetime gathering of Warriors from across their 30-year history recognises the achievements of an exhilarating generation of jazz artists.

    Inspired by Art Kane’s iconic photo essay A Great Day in Harlem, this truly special jazz happening celebrates a seismic moment in UK jazz.

    Gary Crosby OBE, co-founder of Tomorrow’s Warriors, explains: ‘This is a fitting headline to our 30th anniversary year celebrations, a glorious moment in our collective musical history that shines a light on the epic journeys of Warriors musicians. It will be magical to bring our Warriors family together. Your support will help us to protect and develop young outstanding jazz talent.’
