UMAT is a small grassroots community music group based in London.

This not for profit group was founded by vocalist Stephen Pierre in March 2018.

We promote aspiring and seasoned creative talent, support community engagement and other good causes.

Empowering diversity and equality is at the forefront of everything we do. Our collective of musicians ranges from students and graduates from leading London music conservatoires.

Due to the popularity of The Bermondsey Square Jazz Days and Live Music Events presented at the Bermondsey Blue Market, UMAT was nominated for a Mayor of London Award in 2019.

(from 2pm until 5pm)

A new lineup of musicians are invited to join the host and organiser Stephen Pierre at each event.  Featuring many fine students & graduates from London’s leading music conservatoires. 

Thank you to all the musicians and audience members for their kind support and contributions during these trying times.
