About Us

The Humphrey Lyttelton Band concert on 17 March 2018 brought to a close 20 years of Pinner Jazz in Pinner Parish Church.

We're delighted to say that it is not the end of jazz concerts, because the new Music in Pinner Series will comprise a mixture of classical and jazz.

Alan Barnes Quintet

Thursday 27th March 2003

Multiple poll-winner Alan Barnes is an all-time Pinner favourite.

I wish to thank the many people who have made 20 years of Pinner Jazz possible - the organising committee and helpers, people who have provided interval refreshments, sound system operators, people who have prepared publicity posters and put advertising boards round about, people who have run the website and arranged publicity, the huge number of musicians who have played here over the years, and above all the audiences who have supported us so loyally.

With good wishes

Stuart Nattrass - chairman of Pinner Jazz organising committee
