Hadleigh Jazz Club History

 

Hadleigh Jazz Club was started in February 2012. Guest stars from the world of jazz come to play for our appreciative club audience, bringing their own band or guesting with our house band the Chris Ingham Trio at the splendid Town Hall in Hadleigh, Suffolk. A full bar service is available before and throughout  the shows. The archive of all previous gigs with reviews from our friend Robert Carr is below.
