!!Ticket Policy!!

Jazz at St. Giles’ sells tickets only through ‘EventBrite’ and on the door when available. Tickets presented from other ‘sellers’ are not valid and will be refused.


We’ve made a good start with the Oxford University Jazz Orchestra and then a smaller ‘Post Bop’ band made up from some of the OUJO members and their friends. Next up look out for Alyn Shipton’s New Orleans band on May 11th! Tickets are now on sale.

Our Patron: Jacqui Dankworth MBE

We are so pleased to be able to have Jacqui Dankworth, nominated by the late Jean Darke, as our series patron. Jacqui is the UK’s leading jazz singer, and we remember with great pleasure the evenings when she has entertained us so wonderfully as part of the ‘Butterfly’s Wing Quartet and also alongside singer, songwriter and keyboardist, Charlie Wood.

Series 12: Spring/Autumn 2024

Our concert series this year is Supporting Project 900 – including raising funds for a new teaching and performance organ at St Giles’ and for improvements to our facilities in the building.

We had a superb concert on 29 January 2022 from the Imperial College Big Band and Oxford University Jazz Orchestra – here’s a flavour of ‘Much too Much’ featuring Elizabeth Latham and Will Pearce as soloists. OUJO and ICBB return on February 3rd in 2024!

Jean Darke RIP

January 28, 1933 – March 4, 2021

Founder of Jazz at St Giles, our lovely friend and Musical Inspiration, Jean Darke, passed from us on March 4 2021 after a short illness. Our Autumn 2021 Series 9 will celebrate Jean’s life as a musician, and especially her love of jazz which she shared so generously with us all through creating our JASG series.
