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. Last year we enjoyed a "Mardi Gras" night, a 1940's Night, the "Crazy Days of Summer" in August and 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 was the "Mardi Gras" night on 19th February, and members also took part in the Street Parade at the "Fat Tuesday" festival in Hastings. We held our usual "Easter Bonnet" parade in April and a new event, a 1950s night on May 7th when The Pedigree Jazz Band presented their "Tribute to Trad" programme. Our 1940's Night in August attracted 169 people to the Club, a record number since we've been at the Azur, the majority dressed in forties-style outfits.

Our next themed night will be the 1920's Night on 15th October, which is part of the "Hastings Week" programme and sees almost everyone in costumes of the era. Promotional flyers for this event give reduced price entry for non-members, and will be downloadable from our facebook page.

Two pictures from 2013's "Easter Bonnet" parade.

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.

You can see more about our activities and other interesting jazz-related articles on our Facebook page.

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.
