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.
