For some time, we’ve wanted a space to feature our favourite musicians in a relaxed, intimate setting. We’re delighted to have found the beautiful Iffley Church Hall in Oxford. Every month we’ll invite some of the best contemporary jazz musicians from the UK and beyond to join us there – we hope you can join us too!
Be sure to join the newsletter to be the first to hear about each gig.
