AGM: please note that it has become necessary to change the announced date for our AGM, which will now be held on Wednesday 13th November  at the Court House (down the little lane outside Tesco) at 7.30pm.
Car parking   Members won't need reminding it can be difficult to park in Berkhamsted on a Saturday evening, and now the Dacorum car park in Lower Kings Road has been closed the problem has become worse.  We're delighted to say that Waitrose will allow the use of their car park on concert evenings, subject only to the limitation that you don't arrive before 7pm.

The Waitrose car park has ample capacity; you can enter either from Lower Kings Road or St John's Well Lane (adjacent to the recently closed Porters Restaurant).
We are - for more than 35 years - firmly established as one of the premier jazz venues in the South East of England, attracting the finest musicians.

We are always pleased to receive visitors - but we're always happier still to welcome new members.  You really are much better off joining than coming as an occasional visitor - members only have to come to two concerts in a season to be saving money.

Concessions are available for children, students, and Dacorum Card holders.

By the way, we never charge any supplementary fees for booking or handling.  


We don't know of any other club which will offer you the chance to hear the best bands in the country for just £7.50 a concert, but all members are welcome to take advantage of our voucher scheme.  This allows members to buy in advance a set of vouchers which will mean you'll only need to pay £7.50 per concert rather than the normal members' cost of £10.  Advance payment means we'll need to handle less money on concert nights and of course we hope we'll attract more members.  You can find full details on the Vouchers page, but do please note that it's an important part of the scheme that you must buy vouchers in advance.  Part of our thinking is to reduce money handled at the desk, so vouchers are not available on the door.

Vouchers are restricted to members, but it's very easy to become a member, and new members are always welcome.  Membership costs just £10 a season for an individual, or £15 for a couple.

Our belief is that jazz is for enjoyment and we wish to encourage listeners to all the different elements that jazz comprises. We are neither a ‘Traditional Jazz’ club, nor a ‘Modern Jazz’ club; we try to include as many facets of jazz as possible in our programme.

Please note that, as we book artists as much as 18 months ahead, the programme may (very occasionally) be subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances.  This website and our Twitter feed (@berkhamstedjazz ) will always have the latest information.


Berkhamsted Jazz is a member of the Berkhamsted Arts Trust.


The Yamaha piano used at our concerts is tuned and maintained by Juniper Pianos (est. 1948).  For all tuning, repairs, sales, and removals:
