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.

If you wish to donate to the St. Giles’ Project 900 in memory of Jean, please visit our donations web page and follow the instructions there.

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.

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)
