Our concerts

Jean Darke started the ‘Jazz at St Giles’ series in September 2012 in memory of her jazz-loving husband Geoff, and we have kept a list of all the gigs we have run since then (67 and counting as at February 2022!).

Most of the gigs since 2015 have their descriptive promotional web pages here still, but the early ones from 2012-2014 don’t have one.
