The Devonshire Square’s “Art for Love” Christmas Festival will end On Tuesday 19th December with a highly anticipated live concert by worldwide acclaimed saxophonist Aaron Liddard and his band “The Argonauts”, an international collective of musicians from UK, Cuba, Brazil, Switzerland, Italy and Germany.
Aaron Liddard has shared the stage with a number of world- class artists including Prince, Amy Winehouse, Bob Geldof, Steve Cropper, Jools Holland and Carlos Acosta. He has appeared on TV in Len Goodman’s Big Band Bonanza documentary and the feature film Legend alongside Tom Hardy and Duffy.
“Aaron and the Argonauts” will present to the Devonshire Square’s audience a repertoire that combines Jazz classics with their beautiful, passionate and highly original music, an exciting fusion of jazz, bossa nova, funk, alt rock, gospel, drum ‘n’ bass and esoteric free improvisation.
Liddard will be accompanied by Giulia Joni Marelli (Italy - Voice), Filipe Montierro (Barzil - Guitar), Jimmy Norden (UK - Drums), Eric Young (UK - Percussion) and Paul Michael (UK- Bass).
The FREE attendance concert will take place at 5pm in the atmospheric surroundings of Devonshire Square’s Western Courtyard, decorated with beautiful Christmas trees and a sparkling artistic installation of golden “twilight trees” - sculptured cherry trees covered in illuminated blossoms - created by British artist Susie Reid Thomas.
The Devonshire Square’s "Art for Love" Christmas Festival is a 4-week programme of FREE attendance world class artistic performances, organised and curated by the Devonshire Square Events Team to support The Connection www.connection-at-stmartins.org.uk, London's busiest homeless charity, in aid of which the Devonshire Square’s community will be fundraising from 1st to 21st December.

On Saturday 8th December, from 5pm to 10pm, WeWork's Devonshire Square will be proudly launching the first edition of its very own Soul Royalty Winter Festival, a soul music live concert that will see the participation of international touring artist Zalon and his guests Jodie Abacus, Leonn, Stephanie Sounds, Gavin Holligan and Teshay Makeda, some of the finest soul, funk and R&B artists in London. The event, organised by Devonshire Square in partnership with Zalon, aims at raising awareness and funds in support of The Connection, London’s busiest homeless charity, to which Devonshire Square has also dedicated all six editions of its “Art for Love” Festival. Zalon, whose career highlights include a six-year collaboration with Amy Winehouse during her “Back to Black” tour, has enthusiastically accepted Devonshire Square’s invitation to perform in their historical Western Courtyard for the 3rd time, using his vocal talent in support of an urgent cause. On the day of the event, donation boxes will be available on site and attendees will also be able to pay a visit to Devonshire Square’s Giving Tree, a unique Christmas tree entirely adorned with red paper hearts on which wishes of those in need have been carefully transcribed, in order to give them a chance to be read and honoured by visitors. All collected gifts and donations will be delivered to The Connection charity on Christmas’ eve. The Giving Tree, created by the Devonshire Square Events Team in 2015, has helped hundreds of homeless people supported by The Connection Charity to receive a thoughtfully made gift for Christmas. Devonshire Square would like to warmly thank Zalon, his guests and everyone who will be joining them in supporting this fantastic appeal. The event is FREE attendance, however, registration via Eventbrite is required.
