Hi to all jazz fans.

This is an update, to let you know what is happening with the Wall City Jazz Band.

As many of you know, the band had been resident at the Mill Hotel in Chester for over 25 years.

The hotel changed ownership in April 2018 and the new owners decided that they did not want to continue to host the event.

SO...........................................the band have MOVED!

We are now at the Royal British Legion Club, Heath Road, Upton By Chester CH2 1HX.

This will be on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

There is a £4.00 charge on the door which includes a strip of raffle tickets for the chance to win one or two prizes.

If it seems expensive, don't forget that drinks can be bought at a fraction of the price of those at the Mill!

The entry fees are solely used to pay the band, and for raffle prizes, so we are entirely dependent on the number of people who come to support us.

Come along to enjoy the music, have a dance and have a great night out. 


Best wishes, 

The Wall City Jazz Men and Irene Martin.
