Farnham's First Jazz & Cabaret Club
Welcome to Jazz At The Ivy Room
Located in The Ivy Room of the Grade II listed Farnham Conservative Club - a hidden gem of a venue, right in the centre of town - Jazz At The Ivy Room presents monthly sessions on the last Wednesday of each month. Come and hear the country’s finest jazz instrumentalists and singers in an informal cabaret/supper club setting.
With comfortable seating, atmospheric lighting and a well-stocked bar, we'll be bringing you the ambience of an after-hours metropolitan night spot. If the quality interpretations of jazz, soul, blues and swing songs don’t slip you into a New York state of mind, the moody lighting, chirpy staff and vintage venue certainly will.
Times & Tickets
Doors open at 7 pm with live music commencing at 7.45 pm until 10.15 pm. To guarantee your seat, please purchase your ticket online from this site (+ 0.50p booking fee). Go to what's on for ticket links. Alternatively, tickets are available in advance from the Farnham Conservative Club bar or on the door (if we haven't sold out) from £12 per person.
Tables & Seating
All reservations/bookings are guaranteed a seat. Seating will be in a cabaret-style format with small tables, or in a theatre-style in rows. Group bookings of 6 or more will be seated together wherever possible.
'Curry In The Box' will be available to purchase before the show from 7 pm and will be served in the Members' Bar Dining area.
Using the finest fresh ingredients, you will be able to purchase an authentic home-made Chicken Curry served with aromatic cumin pulao or, for vegetarians, a Chickpea Curry. No pre-booking is required.
Jazz and a Curry, what better combination could there be? Well you could add a beer or two, available at The Conservative Club's heavily subsidised prices. Probably the cheapest pint in town!
