We rely on the support of people who like what we are doing. You can help us in various ways.
You can come to The Globe, join the coop, make a donation, sponsor a gig, volunteer, and share our news and events on social media.


The Globe hosts a wide range of music, dance and spoken word events. The Globe is also available for hire for rehearsals, parties and private events.

Visit The Globe to listen to, learn and play jazz (and other music)

We welcome approaches from independent music and arts promoters wanting to use The Globe.

We are well networked with arts and community organisations at local, regional and national levels and are always happy to discuss opportunities for co-operation.



Membership is open to any person or organisation that supports the objectives of the cooperative. To become a member you must complete an application form and buy shares. Shares cost £1 each. The minimum shareholding is 200 and the maximum is 20,000. You can complete this form, or alternatively download this pdf version of the form, print it out and post it to us. You may buy shares in instalments.


We’d love you to become a member of Jazz.Coop, but if you don’t want to, you can still help our cause by making a donation. Please follow the link below to donate with a debit or credit card.


Jazz.Coop has to be financially self-sufficient. We don’t rely on public funding or grants. This means we must be prudent when booking bands.

There are many bands that we’d like to put on at The Globe but we cannot afford to take the financial risk. Sometimes we’ve managed to put on more expensive acts when individuals have sponsored or underwritten the gig.

If you’d be interested in sponsoring a jazz gig please fill in the form below and we’ll contact you to discuss the options.

    We depend on volunteers to do many of the various tasks involved in putting on events, maintaining the premises and running the cooperative. Some people help with specific occasional tasks, such as painting or sourcing equipment, while others undertake regular duties such as bar work or bookkeeping. You don’t have to live near The Globe to help; for example, some of the volunteers helping with promotion are based hundreds of miles away.

    If you would like to do some voluntary work for Jazz.Coop please fill in the form below and we will contact you.
