Jazz is powerful. But it's not immune.
Neither are you.

Monday 30 March
As part of our dedication to supporting new and emerging artists, we record the opening Jazz In The Round set for broadcast, two Sundays later, on Jez Nelson's Sunday night show on Jazz Fm.
ON THE ROAD & FESTIVALS
Emergence is a new all dayer for musicians, sonic artists, producers, cross-arts collaborators and audiences. Like Jazz In The Round, Emergence happens in the round - but we often take the seats out!
It's a space for artists and audiences to come together for a standing, dance-friendly event where people can meet, experiment and make the right mistakes.
And in 2020 Emergence is going on the road to St Mary In The Castle in Hastings.. not quite on the date we planned, but we'll be in Hastings soon!
Join the Jazz In The Round mailing list below to stay in the loop.
We debuted at Love Supreme Festival in 2017.
In 2018 year our stage was bigger, brighter, and became the go-to place for a late night hang.
2019 was the best yet.
See you in 2020? Tickets are now on sale! Visit the Love Supreme website for more details.
LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL
Every year we are proud to be part of the EFG London Jazz Festival.
In 2018 we spread our Jazz wings with gigs both here and at Kings Place. And in 2019 we filled the stage with more musicians than ever before with Jason Yarde & Acoutastic Bombastic.
Have a look at their website for more info
The Cockpit has been awarded an ACE grant so we can record all the emerging artists that play with us at Jazz In The Round .
Take a bow all those who've contributed for free over the years to hold the space and get us here: Jez Nelson, Chris Phillips, Sean Corby, Alex Watson, Richard Wyatt, Steve Cropper, Gina Southgate.
Take a bow Nick Burkinyoung, Akilah Dale, Chris Lince, Deb Jones, Kat Gardner who make each and every event happen with zen quality.
Take a bow The Audience; and Cockpit Supporters of Sound, dozens of whom have been to each and every gig for 7 years.
JiTR set out to provide an open event truly able to reflect and promote the brilliance, beauty and innovation of contemporary jazz in London and the stories of its fabulous musicians.
And we're doing it. So loud applause for all of us - In the round.
