To celebrate the return of live music, we’re proud to announce the launch of Stockwell Live! A series of live professional concerts with world-class performers in a garden setting in SW9, with tickets including wine and canapés served by Al Fresco Feasts.
We’re passionate about bringing live music back into our lives, and also mindful that so many performers are without any income for the foreseeable future. So, Stockwell Live! is here to bring together audience and performers in a safe way with our socially-distanced live performances.
The event is fully compliant with the latest COVID-19 Secure guidelines and DCMS rules on outside performances, with audience sitting in correctly-spaced bubbles and a range of standard protocols in place to make sure your visit is safe. n.b. As a professional concert, we are exempt from the new general “6-person max” rule as from 14th Sept. However, social distancing bubbles must be adhered to throughout your visit.
Book now for our exclusive concerts! – very limited tickets available due to spacing restrictions.
Wednesday 23rd September, 7.15pm. Jazz duo L’Estranges in the Night…
Making the most of the magical garden atmosphere, virtuosic vocalist Joanna Forbes-L’Estrange & jazz multi-instrumentalist husband Alexander bring you L’Estranges in the Night. Come on a journey of jazz standards from the Great American Songbook as you’ve never heard it before. George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter and more, sprinkled with Swingle-style Bach and some of their own songs, from these two towering musical giants.
“Beautifully performed, produced, interpreted and arranged and (unsurprisingly) utterly musical at every turn. Joanna’s voice is stunning.” Howard Goodall CBE
“This is just gorgeous. Unbelievably luscious.” Eric Whitacre, composer

They launched their album New things to say: songs of L’Estrange and Legrand in Pizza Express Jazz Club in Soho and have also played Ronnie Scott’s, the 606 Club and, in 2019, New York’s Carnegie Hall. Their stylistic versatility knows no bounds as they present an entertaining set which includes jazz standards, Swingles-style Bach, songs from the shows, cabaret numbers and their own original compositions, all delivered with the consummate musicianship synonymous with the L’EstrangeMusic brand.
