Darlington New Orleans Jazz Club has promoted live jazz in the town since 1996, and it is our aim to continue bringing quality jazz to Darlington. From ragtime to swing, through the hot dance music of the 1920’s, to the revivalist years and the “traddy pop” of the 1950’s and 1960’s, with perhaps some be-bop and jive, we try to provide a programme which has something for everyone. Jazz has always been about entertainment, and the connectivity between the musicians and their audience, but most of all it is about tapping your feet and enjoying yourself. So don’t be shy, give us and jazz a try! You’ll be sure of a warm welcome.’

Jazz at the Fleece is an association of people interested in jazz. They volunteer their time, and draw no funds from the club. The club is non-profit (you better believe it), and receives no subsidies from any person or organization. In other words, the people who come to listen to some of the best jazz available in the country, pay for the musicians and the running costs. We do try to keep the latter to a minimum ... We are delighted to be at this lovely venue. The quality of sound in the room is excellent. The facilities seem boundless, with golf, other sports, bar and lounge food as well as fine dining, spa and health facilities, a great hotel, and every Friday night, the best in modern jazz.‘

‘Formed in 1991 in partnership with Restormel Borough Council. Its aims are to promote a programme of professional and amateur arts activity and to engage the local community as both audience and participants. Local government reorganisation and loss of Arts Council funding have led to a review of our priorities and methods of working. Although we continue to promote professional events, attracting artists and touring companies to our area, our main focus is on engaging local communities in arts related activities. Projects that engage young people, that celebrate local culture and heritage or reflect on the many physical changes taking place locally are given particular attention. We aim to cover the whole of what is now called St. Austell Bay and its hinterland including Fowey, Lostwithiel, St. Blazey, Mevagissey and the China Clay villages.‘ Activities include support of St Austell Bay Jazz.
