Background ...

When their club first opened in 1959, Ronnie Scott and Pete King could only book British artists because of an MU ban on overseas musicians.  We pay tribute to those early days by presenting two weeks of all-British Jazz. The Ronnie Scott’s Brit Jazz Fest, running Sat 31st July – Sat 14th August this year, celebrates British Jazz with a diverse range of home-grown talent, from established names to up & coming stars, covering all aspects of jazz music.

Always at the forefront of what’s fresh, Ronnie Scott’s has chosen the crop of the British scene.  From household names like Brian Auger, John Taylor & Talvin Singh to new cutting edge bands such as Phronesis, Trio VD and the London Improvisers Orchestra w/ Jason Yarde, the range reflects the wealth of talent on the British jazz scene today.

Over 100 musicians will be performing over the course of the two weeks, with double bills each night, maintaining the tradition of Ronnie Scott’s presenting the finest in jazz. As with last year, we have aimed to keep the ticket prices as low as possible to make the programme as accessible to all jazz lovers - tickets on weekdays are priced at £10-20 (£8-16 for members).

In addition to the fantastic line-up there are a host of other activities to enjoy, including workshops & masterclasses, photography and journalist competitions, quiz shows, artists in residence and more ….
