Book now for weekend workshop 1-2 August at the Globe

One, two, one, two, three, and book now.
There’s a few places left and all instruments are welcome. We’ve got saxes of all sizes, guitars, basses, drums, vocalists (but no trumpets or pianists – come on don’t be shy).
This is a great opportunity to spend the whole weekend playing, listening and learning in the company of others who want to improve their jazz skills – guided by the inspirational James Birkett and Judith Thompson. Participants will be divided into two groups based on experience.
Participants also get free admission to the Williams-Tanton Quartet gig on the Saturday evening and a chance to jam with the band.

You too can own the Globe
Now we’ve bought the Globe we need more people involved and more money invested to make it the best possible venue. As often happens with old buildings, the refurbishment cost more than we expected. We need further investment for
• Buying  sound and lighting equipment
• Refurbishing the kitchen
• Renovating the roof terrace
• Improving the exterior of the building
• Repaying the money we borrowed to install the lift (we are proud to be one of the few small music venues in Newcastle to be fully accessible on both floors).
We don’t just need money. We want more people to play an active part in making this unique venture work. For more information visit http://jazz.coop/invest-2/
