The Chiswick Calendar runs a monthly Jazz club in association with Larry Pryce, a music promoter with forty years’ experience who knows all the best Jazz musicians in London. Held in the Boston Room of George IV, 185 Chiswick High Rd, our Jazz nights are on the first Thursday of every month from January – May and from September – November.
Performances start at 7.30pm and go on till about 9.45pm – two sets with a brief interval in between. Doors open 7.00pm, come early to reserve a table. George IV serves food in the Boston Room, though as it gets busy you might think about eating in the pub beforehand if you can. George IV is a member of The Chiswick Calendar’s Club Card scheme and offers 10% off food Monday – Thursday.
Tickets are £10.00 online, £12.00 on the door. £8.00 for Chiswick Calendar Club Card holders.
Our first event of the year is always a little different, as it is The Chiswick Calendar’s annual birthday bash – an event for all those with a vested interest in maintaining all the good things about Chiswick and creating new things to make it an even more enjoyable place to live. Music from the Greg Davis trio.
