We bring music to neighbourhood venues



NW Live Arts is a charity producing concerts of professional classical and world music in community venues in North West London and beyond. 


Established in November 2018, we believe everyone should be able to experience a live classical music event. Our vision is to share live music with a wide audience and for the arts to have a positive impact on our communities.


At NW Live Arts, we create stimulating live classical and world music performances to inspire new musical encounters, fight preconceptions, and build lifelong relationships with  music and the arts  in local communities.
