The Convent launches new jazz club

Memberships are now up for grabs at The Convent jazz club – set in one of Gloucestershire’s grandest buildings – complete with the chance to catch Ronnie Scott’s regulars in a truly unique setting.

Situated in South Woodchester near Stroud, the spectacular grade II listed former home of Poor Clares Convent is currently undergoing an extensive £3.5m redevelopment, with the first part of the exciting project being a brand new jazz club which is welcoming membership applications.

Now dubbed The Convent, the venue’s exciting jazz club launched at the end of 2013, giving members the chance to enjoy exclusive access to a completely renovated lounge and bar area, complete with live jazz from international-calibre performers on Friday and Saturday nights.

Previous acts to have already graced The Convent include Dexy’s Midnight Runners’ Pete Saunders, widely respected piano player Dom Pipkin and Sophie Smiles from Big Mammas Door. While you can expect to see plenty more Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club regulars descending on The Convent in the coming months.

Access to the bar, lounge and jazz club events is free for members and up to four guests – costing just £20 per month – or £10 for non members.

Look out for independent theatre productions and other special events on an ongoing basis, and visitors can also already catch specialist art exhibitions running along the cloister walls.

Boasting extensive gardens, an orchard and grazing land, original architecture and period features around every corner, The Convent is a truly unique setting and one of Gloucestershire’s most exciting new live music hubs.

The Convent will also be home to a luxury boutique hotel, restaurant and spa set to open in 2014/15.
