London Songwriters is a songwriting community where lyricists and composers of all genres have met at least once a month for the last five years to share their mutual passion for the craft.

There is no better feeling than learning and practising new techniques to express yourself in your chosen endeavour. These  facilitated, practical sessions are designed to help you do this with comfortably challenging collaboration exercises and presentations on aspects of songcraft. By attending you are guaranteed to learn something new and meet potential friends and collaborators.

London Songwriters also provides an opportunity to get valuable feedback on your own songs, whether complete or works in progress. These can be played with an accompanying instrument or via MP3 or CD. You do not have to be an accomplished performer to attend and the group comments will testify to how supportive we are.

Occasionally we have industry guest speakers and special collective performances at festivals or charity events and have also sourced song pitching opportunities.

Above all, the meetups are about enjoyment and a safe space to try out your ideas in an unpressured and friendly environment.


The meetups are organised and facilitated by Murray Webster, a Songwriting MMus Masters Graduate of Bath Spa University and experienced published songwriter currently studying for a PTLLS Community Workshop qualification.

What they say:

“I have now attended five of these. As with the other four this one was a delight.”

“Murray puts a lot of effort into running a smooth event making people of all abilities feel at ease and confident to play their new songs.”

What a brilliant few hours spent sharing and writing and playing, thanks so much to everyone for a great Sunday....!!!!

“Loved it! it was like the anti-X-factor: no competing, no hurtful criticism, simply a bunch of open minded musicians with a passion & talent for music suppporting each other :) I will come again!”

“It was a great experience! Really good for my confidence and to meet nice, talented people.”
