Fleet Jazz Club puts on monthly jazz performances from some of the UK’s finest jazz musicians on the third 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.
