DESUK AGM & Jazz Party 2017

This event will take place at the Punch Tavern at 99 Fleet Street in London on Saturday, April 29. EC4Y 1DE.


We hold bi-monthly events in Central London, to which you and your friends are invited. Non-members are welcome.

Additionally, DESUK members in the capital have formed the London Jazz Society to put on the complementary bi-monthly events with less or no focus on Ellington, in between those of DESUK and at the same venue. These meetings are marked LJS below.

Everyone is welcome to attend the events, and attendance to both Societies' meetings is free to all, with retiring collections to defray expenses. We meet from 1.30 or so for a 2pm start.

Meetings are at the Civil Service Club, 13-15 Great Scotland Yard, London SW1A 2HJ. Embankment Tube Station, Charing Cross or Waterloo Mainline stations and many buses! Map
