Live jazz, groove and soul return to the lawns of Fulham Palace as the historic building is transformed into an al fresco jazz club this summer.
The historic green space has paired up with Chelsea’s renowned 606 Club to present the Jazz on the Lawn outdoor live music event on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 July.
Music lovers can chill out with a homemade picnic or a summer supper from Fulham Palace’s Drawing Room Cafe while listening to the live performances on the main lawn.
Now in its ninth year, the Jazz on the Lawn event kicks off on Friday with a performance from RB Funkestra, a spectacular eight-piece ensemble.
Led by Stefan Redtenbacher, the RB Funkestra is a high energy band with vocals, saxophone, trumpet, drums and guitar, and will feature singer Helena-May as its bass riffs get the crowd moving.
On the following evening, Saturday, the Emma Smith Quintet, featuring Alex Garnett, will keep the jazz vibe alive.
With an international pedigree including stints at Ronnie Scott's, Emma Smith is known as a member of close harmony swing trio the Puppini Sisters, and one of the hosts of BBC Radio 3's Monday night Jazz Now show.
Both performances at the venue in Fulham Palace Road start at 7.30pm, with gates opening an hour before, and tables and chairs can be hired in advance.
Tickets are £16 (adults), £10 (children aged four to 10), while those aged three or under are free.
To book tickets, call 020 7352 5953 or visit the 606 Club website.
