Guildford Jazz is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company whose aim is to bring some of Britain’s finest musicians to a local audience, in an intimate and welcoming “jazz club” environment. We host two gigs each month featuring some of the country’s top jazz musicians: a jazz night in The Pavilion at Guildford Rugby Club on the second Wednesday of the month , and a Jazz Cafe in the bar of the Electric Theatre on a Tuesday night. There’s also a monthly jam session at the Merry Harriers pub on the second Sunday of the month, and occasional workshops.
