The 1066 Jazz Club is now running on THURSDAY evenings, same time and place as before, but without any music from next door.
Our themed evenings have continued to be very popular, bringing new people into the Club. We enjoyed a "Mardi Gras" night in February, a 1940's Night with a dance display by the Cinque Ports Lindy Hoppers in May, the "Crazy Days of Summer" in August, a 1920's Night in October as part of "Hastings Week". We also held an "Easter Bonnet" parade on Good Friday and our Christmas Party in December.
Our first themed evening of 2015 will be the "Mardi Gras" night on Thursday 19th February, and we will again have promotional flyers which will give non-members £2 off the usual admission price. This event will be part of the "Fat Tuesday" festival in Hastings.
We are also working with the "Fat Tuesday" organisers to put on a free event, "Preservation Sunday" on Sunday 15th February at St Mary-in-the-Castle on Hastings seafront, which will include a street parade with decorated umbrellas, marching band and a jazz band playing all afternoon inside the venue. Refreshments will be available and there will be a "mini" beer festival in the venue.

Films are made of our themed evenings and shown on the screen in reception during jazz nights, and copies of these DVDs may be ordered from Rita at the Club.
The 1066 Jazz Club was formed in 1996 and takes pride in continuing the tradition of providing New Orleans Jazz on the Sussex coast. Whether you just want to sit back, enjoy a drink or two listening to a live band or dance the evening away, you can be sure of a warm and friendly welcome.
We meet every Thursday at the Azur, doors open at 7.15 pm, bands play from 8.00 pm to 11.00pm.
