Opened in February 2016 and registered as a Charity (CEO:1167421) ‘The Jazz Centre (UK)’ celebrates the music’s heritage, art and memorabilia and actively supports and promotes contemporary performance and education. We have live events, workshops, movies and clubs every week. Please check www.thejazzcentreuk.co.uk to see what's on.

Our heritage acquisitions already include the instruments of jazz legends (Louis Armstrong’s ‘Special’ trumpet and Sir John Dankworth’s first piano) and the complete Archives of British jazz’s most eloquent and well-remembered spokesman Humphrey Lyttelton – his desk, his instruments and eight decades of his scrapbooks and private correspondence (donated by son Stephen Lyttelton) and his lifetime of achievements and music awards (donated by Eton College).

Our Patrons include:  Dame Cleo Laine, Sir Michael Parkinson, Sir Van Morrison, Dan Morgenstern, Paul Jones, Jools Holland, Simon Spillett, Alan Barnes and Susan Da Costa.
