We are a community cooperative set up to support the learning, performance and development of jazz, related music and the arts. Based at the Globe in Newcastle upon Tyne, we are the first cooperative in the UK to own a music venue and education centre. We put on gigs and courses there and at other venues.


The first floor room may be hired for practice and rehearsals.

It costs £9.00 an hour or £7.50 an hour if at least one member of the band is a Jazz.Coop member.
