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 will be putting up some online resources from our wonderful jazz artists from time to time. Watch the listing on the right. The date now shows the day on which the event will be ‘taken down’ from the site – you can click on them now and enjoy the music!

We are looking to see whether ‘Live Streaming’ of concerts from St Giles might be possible this year.

Sorry to be missing you!

Online jazz events are happening. Here’s a cheerful video for Oxford’s ‘SPIN’ club followers from Pete Oxley and friends!

Online Concert – Nick Meier and friends

Nick Meier is thrilled to have this Thursday 3rd September the wonderful James Pearson on piano and Sam Burgess on bass.
Many of you might have seen them at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz club. Well it should be 2 lovely jazz sets with standards and a few originals. Don’t miss it, shows at 2pm and 5pm

And listen again at 5:00pm

(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)
