Despite all those cuts and closures it's not all doom and gloom for London's cultural calendar. Venues throughout the city this summer play host to the inaugural Bluesfest. Featuring BB King, Booker T and others, its soundtrack is blues, soul and jazz.
Bluesfest's 2011 edition may be its inaugural one, but it's already succeeded in attracting some of the world's best blues performers to the British capital. As well as BB King and Booker T there are performances from The Blind Boys of Alabama and Buddy Greco. It all fits in with festival director Leo Green's mission to bring the very best of the genre to a British audience.
