Chelmsford Jazz Club presents ten or eleven concerts a year at the Cramphorn Theatre, the small sister theatre to the Civic, in Fairfield Road, Chelmsford, CM1 1JG, close to both bus and train stations with ample parking nearby.

Concerts take place Sunday lunchtime at 12:15pm (doors from 11:00am). Both members and non-members are most welcome.

Most of our audience like mainstream and traditional jazz. The club is very proud of the quality of the British, American, and European musicians who come to play for us.

The Cramphorn Theatre has excellent acoustics, with professional sound and lighting. For those visitors familiar with the theatre, we usually replace the lower tier of row seating with cafe style tables and chairs for a more casual and friendly atmosphere. Upper level seating remains for those who prefer an elevated view of the stage.

There is a small bar serving a selection of beers, spirits, wine, soft drinks including tea and coffee and confectionery.

The current full ticket price for most concerts is £16. For an annual fee of £10.00 (single) or £15.00 (joint), members are entitled to a £4.00 discount per ticket and early notice of concerts. If you come along, like what you see and hear and decide to join our club, ticket discounts will soon cover the very modest cost of membership. If you decide to join on the day of the concert (but before it begins) you will be entitled to the discount immediately.

NEW   From October 2018 we are introducing a fixed ticket price of £5 for under 18s.

We look forward to seeing to you.
