Darlington Arts Festival

Darlington New Orleans Jazz Club has been promoting live jazz in the town since 1996.

From ragtime to swing, through the hot dance music of the 1920’s, to the revivalist years and the“traddy pop” of the 1950’ and 1960’s, with perhaps some be-bop and jive, we try to provide a programme with something for everyone.

Jazz has always been about entertainment and connectivity between the musicians and the audience but most of all it’s about tapping your feet and enjoying yourselves.

So don’t be shy come along and give us a try you’ll be sure of a warm welcome.
