Second Sat of the month, 3-5pm, Christ Church Frome, free
With regular evening jazz gigs both mid-week and at weekends, Frome is becoming a new home for jazz in the UK. And now Frome Jazz Club, in partnership with Christ Church, Frome and Frome FM, adds something to the mix that you won’t find anywhere else.
Do you ever feel that even your weekends are too busy and demanding? That you need time out, just to relax? Stolen Moments is a new kind of jazz event. A late Saturday afternoon interlude in the liminal space between day and evening. True down time, in a beautiful church, to do nothing but enjoy exquisite modern jazz and delicious cakes.
From 3-5pm on the second Saturday of each month except July and August, Keith Harrison-Broninski will be at the grand piano in Christ Church (Christchurch St West, Frome BA11 1EH), with a special guest from the many great jazz players loved by Frome Jazz Club fans. Cakes will be available. Entry is free with donations welcome.
Could this only happen in Frome? Add it to your calendar now and look forward to Stolen Moments.
Frome Jazz Club receives no funding. To support our professional jazz musicians and Christ Church, Frome, please donate at an event or online. Your contributions are much appreciated and help keep music live!
