Pianist Reuben James explores the sounds of the 1920s and 1930s with a set paying homage to legendary jazz performers such as Fats Waller and Duke Ellington

Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday 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 at approximately 8pm and the gallery closes at 9pm.
