Watch Jazz Live in The Crypt at St Giles

The jazz club in the Crypt of St Giles Church, on Camberwell Church Street, has been running since 1995 and has raised over £180,000 for church restoration as well as giving thousands of Londoners the pleasure of listening to good music at a reasonable cost.

The intimate Crypt has a capacity of 150, and is fully licensed with a great value bar (glass of wine £2, organic ale £3.30). Gigs take place every Friday and occasional Saturdays and tonight's, featuring the musical talents of Ruth Scott, Will Roberts, Aga Serugolugo, Jo Williams, Ashley Valentine and Jon Hargreaves, promises to be a real treat. It starts about 9pm.

  1. Thanks for the heads up! Just been to Ronnie Scott and looking forward to another jazz performance. Ah, in a crypt no less!

  2. Sounds great - I'll definitely go check it out some time. The address seems to be Camberwell Church St not High St.


  3. You're right, of course, Michael.


  4. I've been to this a few times. It's worth trying out as some of the music is really excellent and the surroundings are prety quirky

  5. I agree klaus and heidi.

    I especially like the nice ladies serving drinks through a hatch.

    I recommend tipping them the difference between a glass of wine there and elsewhere a few times.

  6. Glad you like the Crypt. We have recently completed some short films about JAZZLIVE as part of an ongoing project, you can view them on YouTube here:
