Join virtuoso clarinetist Giacomo Smith, trumpeter Mark Kavuma and pianist Joe Webb, as they explore the sounds of ragtime emerging in nightclubs in the early 20th century.

Every Thursday evening throughout Into the Night, the galleries will come to life with performance in the exhibition’s recreation of Strasbourg’s iconic L’Aubette (1928), focusing on the vitality and diversity of jazz as performed across the globe. The evenings are co-curated with Mark Kavuma, a prominent young trumpet player on the British jazz scene.

The performance starts at 7pm and is free with an Into the Night exhibition ticket. 

Please note that the performance finishes and the gallery closes at 8pm
