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.


Every effort has been made to ensure that the images displayed on our website are done so fairly, and not in breach of copyright. If you do not believe this to be the case, please contact us.

Due to copyright restrictions, some digitised items cannot be viewed over the internet: these are indicated by the National Jazz Archive logo. However, you can view them online by visiting the Archive. To arrange a visit call 0208 502 4701, email or use our contact form provided here.
