The Archive holds several thousands of programmes for clubs, concerts and festivals, dating back to 1919 when the Original Dixieland Jazz Band appeared in London. Many were donated by jazz enthusiasts who attended the events. The cataloguing of these programmes is underway, but not yet complete.

A small number of programmes have been digitised and these can be accessed below.
