BRITAIN'S FIRST CULTURAL CENTRE FOR JAZZ MUSIC...

The Jazz Centre UK is a cultural hub that actively celebrates all aspects of Jazz, preserves its heritage and promotes contemporary performance and education. We are a charity, registered and founded by musician, broadcaster and writer Digby Fairweather in 2016. Read more about how we got started and the Charity on our 'About Us' page.

We are situated in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, in the Beecroft Art Gallery building. It is only an hour away from London on both the Liverpool Street and Fenchurch Street lines. Please plan your visit if you are travelling to Southend as there is a lot to do around the town and some great places to stay in.

We operate both within our Centre and online. Attend live events, see heritage collections of famous Jazz musicians, workshops, browse our shop, visit us to browse our large library of books, vinyls and CDs and much more.
