It's not often you get the chance to visit this 'hidden gem' of a building nestled just by the River Thames and the Inns of Court. Marking 100 years since Jazz reached Britain, Two Temple Place reopens to the public this January, with its seventh annual Winter Exhibition, Rhythm & Reaction: The Age of Jazz in Britain.


Produced in partnership with The Arts Society this major exhibition brings together paintings, prints, cartoons, textiles and moving films plus the all-important instruments that created this new special jazz sound.
