News update January 2021
Along with most other performing arts venues, we’ll have to wait a little while for live performances to restart. There will no concerts in January or February , but we very much hope we can welcome Paul Higgs for his Brief History of Jazz in March. Please sign up to our mailing list to keep in touch.

PAUL HIGGS presents
“A BRIEF HISTORY OF JAZZ”
Paul Higgs is renowned as one of the UK’s leading trumpet players and composers. In this show Paul and his band take you a delightful musical tour of the history of jazz, playing hits by the legendary greats- Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker and Miles Davis amongst others.
Taking you through the styles of New Orleans, swing and be-bop, through cool jazz, modal and Latin, Paul gives an intimate and outstanding performance.
With Chris Ingham – piano, George Double – drums, Marianne Windham – bass
“Paul Higgs displays a gorgeous tone,unflagging inspiration, stylistic cognisance at its most perceptive andenviably faultless chops to boot!” Digby Fairweather: BBC presenter and jazz trumpeter
Fleet Jazz Club holds monthly jazz performances from some of the UK’s finest jazz musicians on the 3rd Tuesday of the month, in a “jazz club” environment at the Harlington Centre in Fleet. The club has an enthusiastic and growing membership since it started in January 2013, and we are always very happy to see new people too. There’s more about who we are and what we do here.
We have a growing gallery of wonderful photos of recent gigs thanks to our friends at Aldershot, Farnham & Fleet Camera Club (AFFCC). Also we have created short profiles of most of the artists who have performed at Fleet Jazz Club.
