About

Welcome to the Wigan Jazz Club, bringing quality local, national and international jazz to the North-West of England for over 30 years. We meet monthly on the last Sunday of each month from September to June, with occasional additional special events. We support and give a performance platform to Wigan Youth Jazz Orchestra, as well as our own Wigan Jazz Club Big Band. We are closely associated with the annual Wigan International Jazz Festival. WJC has been listed in The Independent as one of the top 50 jazz venues in the UK. Find out what’s on, how to join, details of artists, photographs of concerts, how to contact us and links to other sites.

  • Club sessions are normally on the last Sunday lunchtime of each month (September-June) from 12.30 pm to 3.30 pm.
  • Throughout the year there are special events – details are published on this site, in our flyers
  • Concerts are open to both members and non-members. The concessionary price for members will more than repay the cost of membership.
  • The Club is closely associated with the world-renowned Wigan International Jazz Festival, held each July, and members receive advance booking information and concessionary prices.
  • Many of the club sessions feature our own jazz orchestra – the multi award-winning Wigan Youth Jazz Orchestra
