As part of the annual heritage Open Days season, the National Jazz Archive is presenting a series of free talks from prominent jazz and heritage professionals at the Loughton Library in Loughton, Essex, on the 7th and 8th September.
The speakers will consist of Andy Simons, talking about the ‘Journeys of a Jazz Curator', Duncan Heining offering a perspective on British Jazz in the 1960s, and Dr Nicolas Pillai of Warwick University will discuss ‘Jazz in British Cinema.’
All the talks are free to attend but places are limited to 60 per event. The Archive itself will be open throughout the Heritage Open Days, with tours of the Archive and the opportunity to handle Archive material on offer, as well as children’s activities and live music.
