About Us

   The Jazz Club


The club meets on the first Friday of every month, from February to July inclusive and September to November inclusive.  The aim of the club is to provide a venue for quality jazz provided by properly supported and paid musicians. There are very few of these in the North Devon area.

Jazz is a very broad church, it is not just Acker Bilk or weird, unmelodic noise. It can be soft and sensual or stirring and dramatic and everything in between. Something for everyone.

The best way to make sure you don't get caught out is to sign up for the monthly email newsletter. This gives details of the bands appearing together with local jazz related news. Your email address is not given to anyone and you receive nothing but the one newsletter per month.



Entry costs £12 if purchased online 24 hours before the performance, or you can buy the on the door, for £15. You can pay online by BACS transfer. Bank details are: Cashplus account number 03568688, sort code 087199, account name South Molton Jazz Club.

Be aware that the bank details will show as APS Financial.

Make sure to use your name and initials as a reference.   If you email info@firstfridayjazz.uk or leave a message on 01598 740114, we will confirm receipt of your payment.

Please specify which meeting/band you are paying for ! If you don't, we'll assume it is for the next scheduled meeting.

Or you can send a cheque payable to Nigel Penfold at 21 Broad Close, North Molton, Devon, EX36 3JD.



Under normal circumstances, if a meeting has to be cancelled, we will refund anyone who has paid (Acts of God, etc, excluded). Refunds are not normally given to people who find that they are unable to attend a meeting.


And Further . . .


There will be a different band each month, playing from 8.30pm until 10.30 - 11.00 .  We will feature a mix of styles, with something for everyone.  Look at Future Events to see who is playing this month.

All musicians who perform for the club will be paid. This is NOT a talent contest, free mike night, or come and have a go type operation.

Please bear in mind that the line-up of bands may vary due to illness, unforseen circumstances and the unavailability of individual members. Sometimes bands may cancel at very short notice and substitutes have to be found. We will post any changes here.
