The wonderful Victorian Palm House in Sefton Park, Liverpool L17 was home to many Jazz at the Palm House concerts promoted exclusively by LIVERPOOLJAZZ in its early days. Open throughout the year.

North of England’s premiere jazz festival, now under new management in the capable hands of The Music Continuum: Liverpooljazz has always been delighted to be associated with and support the Wigan International Jazz Festival which it did once again with the 2019 festival in July. We continued to attend concerts at the festival’s new venue, The Village on the Green in Aspul just outside Wigan, including the amazing Jazz Planets tribute to Gustav Holst and Duke Ellington. Along with many other organisations, the 2020 festival was cancelled due to the virus but we hear that, subject to sponsorship and virus regulations, they have booked the venue for 9th -11th July 2021 in the hope that the pandemic has eased off. We also hope to see the return of the monthly gigs of the Wigan Jazz Club where some of the best regional and national jazz musicians and big bands perform. This is also the home of the award winning Wigan Youth Jazz Orchestra. For details of the Wigan Jazz Club visit www.wiganjazzclub.co.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org

LIPA opened in 1995 to forge a new approach to performing arts training that would lead to sustained employment. It was co-founded by Sir Paul McCartney (Lead Patron) and Mark Featherstone-Witty (Principal) and has established a reputation as one of the UK’s leading higher education institutions for performers and those who make performance possible. For several years Liverpooljazz awarded prizes to the most promising final year music students at LIPA’s annual graduation ceremony. It is encouraging to note that many music and jazz students, particularly from out of town and abroad, decided to make Liverpool their home after they graduated.
Several of the photographs on this website were provided by local photographer Alan D Smith who specialises in images of people in the performing arts. You will see Alan at concerts and gigs promoted by Liverpooljazz and the Capstone Theatre in Liverpool.
