Jazz at St Giles

Our Patron: Jacqui Dankworth


As from 2019, Jacqui Dankworth, one of the most highly regarded vocalists in the UK, has graciously agreed to be our patron.

2020 Programme

STOP PRESS: Although all forthcoming ‘live’ concerts are cancelled, we have aranged two Autumn events which will be streamed online from the church. Details are in the right hand column – see ‘View Details’ for each one.

We have also created some static pages for concerts that you might have enjoyed if they had taken place with some videos of the performers to enjoy for now..

Watch the listing on the right and the ‘These you will love’ link above. The date on the right now shows the day on which each event was planned and they will be ‘taken down’ from the site as the date passes. ‘These you would have loved’ links above will be retained for reference.

We are hoping against hope that some more ‘Live Streaming’ of concerts from St Giles may be possible in due course. Join our JASG mailing list  List and we will let you know as soon as we can!

Sorry to be missing you!

Online Concerts – Nick Meier and friends

Nick Meier is offering online ‘Garden Concerts’ which are worth looking for.

(You can join Nick Meier’s mailing list by sending a note to meiergroup@hotmail.com and he will let you know about his future outings in his garden and shed)

Here’s a great video from one of our favourite Big Bands – The Oxford University Jazz Orchestra – so sorry we won’t be hosting you for a while, but let’s hope one day we can again.

And another from the same source – recorded in isolation:

And from 2017 – My Funny Valentine

Let’s hear it too for the Donut Kings – another band that we hope to see in the flesh again as soon as we can! (Requires web-based Facebook login to be active)
