MEET THE TEAM

We simply could not function without the huge support and effort from the Trustees and Volunteers at The Jazz Centre UK, listed below. We thank them for their continued hard work putting this project together and for helping us to expand our activities year-on-year.

 

Do you live in South Essex and have a passion for jazz music and arts? We invite you to volunteer for our organisation. Since January 2019, our opening hours expanded from two to five days a week and we need all the help we can get to ensure the Centre continues to be vibrant for visitors.
