The Jazz Centre UK urgently needs your support to ensure the future of the centre! ConnectsMusic supports The Jazz Centre UK and encourages all of our members to sign the petition by clicking here!
The mission of The Jazz Centre UK is to promote, preserve and celebrate the culture of jazz, in all its forms, for the benefit of a diverse and growing community. Located in the City of Southend on Sea, it is the only centre of its kind in the UK.
The Jazz Centre UK was founded in 2016 as a registered charity. With the support of, what is now, Southend on Sea City Council, it has grown from a single room to occupy a complete floor of the Beecroft Gallery at the heart of our City.

Southend on Sea City Council has decided to withdraw its primary support for The Jazz Centre UK, serving us notice to leave our premises by 1 August this year. A search for a new home that is practical and affordable has been unsuccessful so far.
The trustees of The Jazz Centre UK are seeking your support to persuade Southend on Sea City Council to think again and work with us to avoid closure of our charity.
