ICMP Songwriters' Circle

The Songwriters’ Circle is a monthly event led by our highly-experienced songwriting teachers and music industry professionals. Open to all, the event attracts writers, musicians, music lovers and music industry executives, encouraging a unique and diverse blend of people to come together to discuss and enjoy quality songwriting.

Staged in an intimate setting, the audience gets an exclusive opportunity to hear songs in their most stripped-back form, with the songwriters themselves sharing personal insights into how the songs have been created.

The Circle is always curated to include established writers as well as talented, up-and-coming ICMP songwriting students. Recent special guests have included Frank Turner and Ed Harcourt, as well as ICMP graduate Elena Tonra from internationally-acclaimed act Daughter and Island Records’ rising star Lauren Aquilina. Studying a Songwriting Degree at ICMP in London provides students with the opportunity to play live with established writers and performers in a great venue, providing the inspiration and real-world experience to support their more traditional teaching and learning.


We are extremely proud of this event, which is the beating heart of the vibrant songwriting community we have built here at ICMP. It brings together students and graduates from across all years of the programme, our tutors and our industry friends, providing an opportunity to celebrate a love of song craft.
