Our thanks to Dave O’Higgins for leading a splendid concert last Saturday with his regular colleague Graham Harvey taking the place of the stricken Darius Brubeck.  It was a busy couple of days, but we managed to get in touch with all but one of those who'd booked tickets and let them know of the personnel change, and of course the vast majority were happy to turn up anyway.

Get well soon, Darius, and we'll hope to be able to rebook the group at the earliest opportunity.
You could call our 2017-18 season our Dynasties Programme - there's a Brubeck band, a Garrick band, a Tracey band, and the BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year as part of the Ridout Family band (and of course, much more besides).  You can find the full programme on the Current Programme page.

At a late stage we were able to add an additional concert to our programme, so this season we have thirteen concerts rather than the usual twelve.

We don't know of any other club which will offer you the chance to hear bands like these for just £7.50 a concert, but all members are welcome to take advantage of our new 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 on the night, so vouchers are not available on the door.

Vouchers are restricted to members, but it's 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.  Special offer: we're now halfway through the season, so membership through to the end of June is available for just £5 (£10 per couple).  


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.  Tickets are not expensive, and we never charge any supplementary fees for booking or handling.  Concessions are available for children, students, and Dacorum Card holders.

We have about 250 members, who receive significant discounts on ticket prices, and we are always pleased to welcome new members.

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 will always have the latest information.
