The End of an Era in Darlington

Saturday  July 7, 2012 sees the Arts Centre at Darlington close its doors for the final time, yet another victim of local government cuts.
The Arts Centre, has been the popular venue for Darlington New Orleans Jazz Club over the last fifteen years.  In that time we have promoted traditional and classic jazz, from ragtime to swing, and brought our audiences musicians not only from around the U.K, but also from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Holland, and the U.S.A.
The last gig at the Arts Centre takes place at lunchtime a week on Saturday, when we welcome The Savannah Jazz Band. The band’s driving and exciting New Orleans style ensures that it continues to be one of the most popular U.K bands, which also has a truly international reputation.
We hope to see as many of our patrons, both past and present, to make sure we go out with a bang and not a whimper. For those who can’t make it, Ray and Graham would like to thank everyone for their support and encouragement in helping them to keep music live.
It was - and still is - a wonderful venue and it is so sad to lose it. However, all may not be lost for the club - watch this space...
Lance (with thanks to Graham Foster for most of the above.)
The Savannah Jazz Band     Saturday July 7, 2012 at 12.30p.m. 
Tickets £8.50 from Darlington Arts Centre   Telephone 01325 486555
