Jazz at The Hepworth Wakefield is programmed in association with The Yorkshire Live Music Project (shortlisted Jazz Promoter of the Year, 2012 Jazz Yorkshire Awards)
YLMP administrator Sandra Carlon says: “As a collaborative organisation, using mainly non-traditional venues and as an organisation dedicated to audience development, we were thrilled and proud to be invited to support the live music offer at The Hepworth Wakefield. The monthly jazz series presents a fabulous opportunity for regular and new to jazz audiences alike. We hope the series helps support the northern platform showcasing the fabulous jazz talent the region has to offer. The feed-back has been hugely encouraging, with one audience member telling us she had enjoyed the event (Bach Reloaded September 2014) better than anything she had experienced in London!!”
All live jazz events are admission free, begin at 6pm and finish at approximately 8pm. At it’s monthly After Hours events, the gallery’s exhibition spaces are open to 9pm and live jazz for After Hours forms part of THW’s events programme.
