After falling silent for almost two years because of Covid etc, our Jazz Appreciation Group was re-launched in October 2021. We have kept much of the format that has evolved over the last two decades, whilst at the same time utilising video streams as well as recorded content to enhance our members’ experience. Our purpose is to cover the widest possible range of jazz styles to satisfy most tastes.
We are well on the way to finalising an exciting programme for 2022 which will include guest speakers, presentations by our own members, live music and feature films. Highlights will include an award-winning film about the great jazz singer, Billie Holiday, our yearly live performance by the superb Hurstpierpoint College Jazz Band, not to mention our almost legendary garden party in July. We are an all-inclusive and welcoming group and our mission in life is to prove that Jazz is alive and well and resides not only in New Orleans, New York and Chicago, but also right here in Burgess Hill.
Meetings held at Burgess Hill Football Club every 4th Tuesday of the Month, from 2.00pm to 4.15 pm.
