DJAZZ: Saturday Wet Weather - IMPORTANT change of venue (Fowlers Yard)

As you can probably see the good old British weather has a lot of rain in store for Durham today! This has scuppered our plans for the outdoor stage at Fowler’s Yard - we don’t think anyone wants to listen or play in the rain, and the forecast for the odd thunderstorm means that the best option is to move the outdoor events, indoors.
We have planned for this, so it’s wet weather contingency time!
Our alternative for the day venue is TESTT Space… we are presuming most of you won’t know where this is, which means it’s another great venue for you to discover this weekend.

TESTT Space is an art gallery in the city centre, directly above Durham Bus Station! Today it will be converted into a jazz club specifically for DJAZZ!
So, please don’t let the weather put you off, you can still catch all the great jazz programmed and use the venue as a hub / hang out spot in between bands.
How to find TESTT Space
The venue is situated directly above the Bus Station on North Road.
The door is opposite the British Heart Foundation next to ‘Recyke your Bike’.
Look for DJAZZ flags and branding, as well as volunteers on near the door.

Floor 2
Durham
DH1 4SG

*Please note: this venue is only accessible by stairs, apologies for any inconvenience. If you have any questions regarding accessibility please call 07549 682 913.

Change of Schedule:

>>> Terminally Chill have been added to the bill and will play the hub (formerly Fowlers yard, now TESTT Space due to wet weather) at 3:30pm.

>>> Alter Ego will now play at the slightly later time of 5pm, again at TESTT Space due to wet weather.

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to them all other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
