Welcome to Jazz Club... Nice!
The Lion at Basford's Sunday afternoon Jazz Club is one of Nottingham's most famous jazz clubs. For over fifteen years Sunday afternoon has welcomed full to bursting audiences who come to experience the greatest names in local jazz – from the early days of Shipstone Street Jazz Orchestra and Ben Martin to today’s top local names, Esmond Selwyn, Dave Leithead and Ed Marchewicz.
With music ranging from fun, boogie-woogie and jive, to classy vocalists exploring the Great American songbook, there is music to suit every taste. So, for families looking a special celebratory meal, or an addition to a Cultural weekend, or for parents who simply want to introduce their children to jazz, the Sunday Jazz Lunch us the perfect setting. Food served 12noon - 7pm.
The Big Wednesday Quiz
Join Ella, your quizmaster, at The Lion every Wednesday night from 7.30pm for the definitive general knowledge quiz. Questions vary from current affairs to sci-fi movies and everything inbetween. The quiz is sponsored by Oakham Ales and the top prize every week is £50 cash. There are occasionally other minor prizes which can vary between t-shirts and cases of cider.
For only £1 entry (per person) not only do you play for £50 cash but everyone playing gets entered into a weekly prize draw to be called up to play open-the-box. We start with 11 keys and each week if the box doesn;t get opened the keys go down and down to just 2. In the box is £100 and it can rollover and accumulate! See you Wednesday!
