In 2021, after twenty-seven very happy years at the Farnborough Sports Club, (+6years at Badgers Mount Hotel) our Jazz (which was held every Friday evening), has now moved next door to the FARNBOROUGH SOCIAL CLUB. We also changed to hold the jazz once a month on a Sunday afternoon. And after four months, in 2022, – we now hold it twice a month (every first and third Sunday), opening at 1:00pm, with music held from 2:00-5:00pm. We began with ‘MICK COLLINS LEGACY JAZZ ORCHESTRA’, (16pce), on SEPTEMBER 2021, followed with ‘FORCE TEN BIG BAND, (17pce). Unfortunately, we all had problems with the petrol situation, so few could get here, but we still had a wonderful atmosphere. We will be presenting bands of all types and sizes, with the thought of encouraging all ages.
Entrance: £10. Bar (club prices), plus large free car park. Located in the Farnborough SOCIAL Club, Farrow Field, (lane next to The Woodman Pub – and club to your RIGHT), High Street, Farnborough, Kent BR6 7BA, England.

We had a wonderful 25years with the Football Club and parted with mutual reasons. As soon as we get into the rhythms of a new club, Keith and I will try to support them in their very successful rise up the various football leagues – we wont be so tired on Saturday mornings!!!
