Spiritland at JOY launches – for six weeks only! May 2021

We are thrilled to announce that Spiritland at JOY returns from Tuesday 18th May 2021 with a packed six weeks of music, culture, food and drink.

As well as all the usual range of Spiritland selectors playing there’s exciting one-off happenings including a weekly live jazz night, three great talks and residency from a legend of the UK’s house music scene.

Every Tuesday night we’re hosting a live jazz session from some of the UK’s greatest jazz musicians. You can see Tara Minton, the Irene Serra Quartet, the Jay Phelps Quartet and Wild Card featuring Dino Baptiste on stage.

There’s a Saturday afternoon residency with Terry Farley and Friends, playing gems from their collections from 1pm-6pm every weekend.

We’re also thrilled to announce three very special talks on consecutive Wednesdays: Norman Jay MBE speaks to Mark Webster about his life in music, followed by a DJ set on Wednesday 2nd June.

The second talk finds singer and actor Roland Gift (Fine Young Cannibals) in a very rare one-on-one conversation with Miranda Sawyer on 9th June.

Finally, welcome the reggae don Dennis Bovell to ours, seen most recently in Steve McQueen’s remarkable Small Axe film Lovers Rock, talking about his life at the centre of the UK Reggae scene and on the outer edges of Punk.

Food comes from the iconic Poon’s London and cocktails are made with spirits from the House of Suntory.

All bookings can be made here

Looking forward to catching up at our temporary summer home in West London.
