Jazz at Goldenhill


Jazz at Goldenhill 2016A great night of music and merriment is lined up with Harry Hussey and Lily’s Weepers and an evening of jazz, courtesy of the North Staffs Accordion Club.

We are pleased to be able to unite the players once more, having done so for the last four years, to sell out audiences. This session will be in our new venue, Goldenhill Workingmen’s Club, with a larger and very pleasant room. By popular demand there will again be lots of well-known jazz tunes and plenty of fun.
