About Us

   The Jazz Club


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 club meets on the last Friday of every month, in the upstairs function room of the George Hotel in South Molton.  But do check, as very occasionally the last Friday is not available. 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.

The hotel is licenced until midnight.



Tickets cost £10 . They can now be purchased online up to the last Wednesday of the month in question.

Send electronic payment to Natwest Bank account number 24277606, sort code 56 00 29.   Account name Nigel Penfold.  Make sure to use your name and initials as a reference.   We do not normally post tickets out, just pick them up at the door on the night.

Please email nigelpenfold@aol.com or leave a message on 01598 740114 once your payment is made, and we will confirm receipt.  Make sure you specify which meeting / band you are paying for. If you don't, we will assume it is for the next scheduled band/meeting.

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

A limited number of tickets will also be available from the George Hotel, South Molton in advance, but these are cash/cheque only.

And, of course, any unsold tickets will be available on the door, on the night.




Under normal circumstances, if a meeting has to be cancelled,we will refund anyone who has bought a ticket. (Acts of God etc excluded). Refunds are not normally given to people who find they are unable to attend a meeting. Tickets are valid only for the date shown on them.


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.
