A Jazzy Christmas Concert at Hampstead Parish Church

Wednesday 23rd December 2020


In light of the newly announced restrictions for 23rd December  2020, this event has been cancelled.

The Hampstead Jazz Club and Hampstead Parish Church are very sorry that this event can’t go ahead as planned, as we were supporting musicians in the jazz community and raising funds for the Hampstead Jazz Club musicians’ support fund.

We will be arranging a new concert in 2021 to celebrate the return of Live Music Events and showcase a perfectly mixed cocktail of classic jazz with a twist from an eclectic array of artists.

Please support the musicians and come back in 2021.

Hampstead Jazz Club in association with Hampstead Parish Church proudly present a very special Jazzy Christmas evening.

A Socially Distanced Concert.

Venue – The Parish Church of St John-at-Hampstead, Church Row, London, NW3 6UU

This iconic venue in the heart of Hampstead was consecrated in 1747 and now has seating for 700 people (150 socially distanced).

Tickets: £20

Doors: 7.00pm

Show Time: 8.00pm

Featuring new arrangements of festive favourites penned by ‘brilliant young pianist’ Paul Edis and performed by some of the leading lights on the UK jazz scene including ‘velvet-voiced’ Jo Harrop.

After what has been an incredibly difficult year for musicians in the jazz community, profits from ticket sales will go to the Hampstead Paris Church and Hampstead Jazz Club musicians’ support fund.

Paul Edis (MD)

Described by Brian Morton for Jazz Journal as A significant new voice in British Jazz – composer and pianist Paul Edis was selected for the prestigious talent development scheme ‘Take Five’ by Serious in 2017. His music has been played on the radio in the UK, Europe and in the US.

Jo Harrop (Vocals)

Having recently received a raft of rapturous reviews for her ‘Weathering The Storm’ album, Jo Harrop is one of the brightest new stars in the jazz universe. Described by BBC 6 Music’s Iggy Pop as “a very fine jazz singer,” she has a velvety voice that can melt the stoniest of hearts.
