Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

If You Can't Use It - Don't Waste It!

Just a short reminder of this Friday's Lunchtime Jazz concert by Emma Fisk's Hot Club Du Nord at the Gala Theatre in Durham - if you have tickets.

The concert sold out two months ago so you will need to contact the box office about any returns. If you do have tickets which you are unable to use, please inform the box office or bring/send someone with the tickets on the day. 

All concerts this year have sold out at the box office, but there are always seats untaken, which is frustrating for Gala staff (who can't admit people without tickets) and for those of us running the concerts, as well as to those people who arrive on the off-chance that there may be returns and then see empty seats.

Hot Club du Nord - Gala Theatre & Cinema, Millennium Place, Durham DH1 1WA. Tel: 03000 266 600. 1:00pm. £5.00.
