Kings Place FestivalThe seventh annual Kings Place Festival takes place in mid-September with a unique formula of 100 events and concerts squeezed into just three days. Audience numbers have risen higher with every year and are expected to be at an all-time high this year with events like The Queen's Six, a choral group based at Windsor Castle who sing regularly for the Royal family, the London Klezmer Quartet, the MOBO award winning jazz band Empirical, and The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment lined up. A jam-packed schedule in the halls, galleries and foyers of the King's Cross arts hub blends musicians, artists and cultural figures over one balmy long weekend. The festival presents an extraordinary line-up of classical, contemporary, experimental, folk, jazz and blues music, alongside the finest spoken word, visual art, comedy and food. If you book more than three events, you can benefit from the 'click'n'mix' discount offers. For performances, times and prices, visit www.kingsplace.co.uk/festival.

About Kings Place

Just 150 metres from King's Cross and St Pancras stations and with a waterside setting, the Dixon-Jones designed Kings Place combines the offices of The Guardian newspaper with a concert hall and two art galleries. As you'd expect from the architects behind the recent improvements to the Royal Opera House and National Portrait Gallery it's a well designed complex of curvaceous surfaces and appealing public spaces.
