We’re set to make the cauldron bubble this London Jazz Festival, with the sounds and craft of top female + NB jazz musicians for a brand new event, right here at Toulouse Lautrec.

Coven Jazz Nights is a platform designed to celebrate female/NB artists and inspire future line-ups.

We're here to make the potion for your notion; and foster a community that’s set to show this town what we’re all made of! You’ll be treated to not one, but two outstanding hosts in the form of the incredible singer/songwriter, Helena Debono and multi-instrumentalist/composer/arranger Jessica Bullen. 

Knowing there was a shortage of female led residencies, Fausta Joly a.k.a. Joly Licks, set about concocting the perfect partnership; bringing together two super talented friends who both know how to work a stage and a crowd. 

With a passion for inclusivity, raising up fellow artists, and creating safe spaces within the Jazz community, #covenjazz was born!

Every month, you’ll be invited to specially curated evenings with an all-female/NB house band featuring incredible special guests.
