Nu sounds all-dayer

Thu 23 Apr 2020 to Sun 26 Apr 2020



Produced and presented by The Cockpit /Jazz In The Round 


Music, Live Dance, Open mic, Spoken Word, Artists, Street Food + More

Emergence is our new all dayer for musicians, sonic artists, producers, cross-arts collaborators and audiences.

It happens in the round - but with the seats taken out. It offers a time and a space for players, artists and audiences to come together around a standing, dance-friendly all dayer event where we can meet, experiment and make the right mistakes.

As London Jazz makes its way out into the world, The Cockpit wants to continue giving support to artists of all kinds who respond to this exciting new sound, wholly owned by the Londoners that make it.


23rd - 26th April 2020

We're taking EMERGENCE on the road, and returning to St Mary In The Castle where the first ever EMERGENCE happened way back in 2018.

Tickets will be on sale soon. Join the mailing list at the bottom of the  JAZZ IN THE ROUND  page, and follow us on Facebook to stay up to date.

We are inviting musicians, dance and spoken word artists to get involved.  As time goes on, we want to provide an opportunity for London Jazz to make connections, artistic, political or literary as well as purely musical wherever and with whoever it chooses to make them.

Emergence grew out of The Cockpit's contemporary jazz programming. For seven years  Jazz In The Round has been proud to be part of London jazz, presenting, recording and broadcasting the stream of evolving talent supported superbly by initiatives like The Total Refreshment Centre, Jazz Refreshed and Steam Down and running stages at Love Supreme, Kings Place and The Roundhouse.
Emergence is curated by Lyle Barton and Rachel Jackson but the intention is for it to be self-propagating:  with input from as broad a range of people as possible: musicians (and anybody else)  are very welcome to suggest other artists, working in any art form, who might want to participate.

Our regular monthly Jazz In The Round sit-down gig will continue on the last Monday of every month where we will continue to record, film and find distribution opportunities for as many artists as we can. Emergence adds a looser, day long arts lab event in June, September, November and February, leading to Emergence festival in April 2020.
