100 years of jazz in 90 minutes - Saturday night at the Customs House.

Hi everybody,: this great show is on at the Customs House, Mill Dam, South Shields (main theatre) on Saturday night, starting 8pm. The Jazz Repertory Company band (up from London) includes such jazz stars as Richard Pite on drums and Rico Tomasso on trumpet, and the fast-moving programme covers a lot of musical ground linked by entertaining chat from Mr Pite. Box Office is 0191 454 1234, or book online at
Very nice food in the Green Room bistro, and stunning views across the Tyne from this very pleasant riverfront arts centre, which deserves all the support it can get in these tough times.
Mike Durham.
