London and UK events – September 2021

This month, west London rebel girl Connie Constance (pictured) kicks off her UK and European tour, you can enjoy the jazz and soul of Cherise and Kitty La Roar, and catch Emmavie performing her simmering R&B in London.

The expressive singer Muva of Earth also takes to the stage at an event she’s billed as a “cross-dimensional healing exhibition” at The Hackney Social (Thursday, September 30). Fans of Erykah Badu and Greentea Peng should check out this live show.

Plus, the Leytonstone Loves Film festival is taking place from September 15. This free festival supports local filmmakers, and offers film screening, talks, workshops and more. Well worth checking out.

Live music, clubbing, film, literature, art, and other events in London and the rest of the United Kingdom for the month of September 2021.

Note: all dates are subject to change. We encourage you to check health guidance for events/venues before you travel.
