About the event

Join us for a feast of swing, jazz and big band music at our annual Jazz Night where we will be entertained by the Derby Grammar School Swing Band and Barbershop Choir, as well as the Hot House Screaming Kicks Big Band.

Derby Grammar School’s Swing Band love to perform and will entertain you with swing classics, followed swiftly by our award-winning Barbershop Choir who will get your feet tapping.

They will then hand over to the Screaming Kicks Big Band, an international award winning jazz orchestra from the Hot House Music School family, accompanied by the dulcet tones of Wil Pearson and Ross Parker, plus others .

Having recently completed a #coast2coast tour of America the Screaming Kicks Big Band perform over 90 gigs each year and are set to tour to Tokyo and the Olympics in 2020! Their unique high-octane performances have enthralled audiences for years and they are delighted to be a part of the Derby Grammar School Jazz Night once again.

Food and drink

The bar is open from 7pm, and curry will be served at 8pm. The ticket price includes curry.


Jazz Night is run jointly by the Derby Grammar School PTA and the Tanzania Project team. Our Tanzania 2019 team will be running the evening, serving the curry – and washing up! All profits from the ticket sales go towards the students’ costs for the Tanzania trip, of £4200 each.

The bar is run by our fantastic PTA. All bar profits are ploughed back in to school projects suggested by the pupils themselves. Recent projects have included refurbishing the gym, basketball hoops, junior school play equipment, and even a new minibus.


Jazz Night is open to all, whether you are a Derby Grammar School parent or not. Tickets are available from School Reception, or call 01332 523027. Alternatively, email marketing@derbygrammar.org 

Tickets cost just £10 for adults or £5 for under 12s. Each ticket includes a delicious curry meal.

Why not organise an evening out for you and your friends? We can allocate a table for you and your guests. Simply follow the instructions on the back of your ticket to reserve your table.
