Patrick Jenkins Rest in Peace

As many of you know Pat passed away suddenly in July. He suffered an unexpected and massive heart attack and, despite the NHS’ best efforts passed away.

Pat, Bobby, Sue and Ben combined their love of jazz to form Jazz at the Village.

Pat was not only the inspiration behind Jazz at the Village, but he led the entire enterprise from the front. He put up his own money to bring the monthly jazz concerts to a highly appreciative audience in Felpham village’s Memorial Hall.

He will always be remembered for being there at the front of house welcoming audience members old and new. And, of course, for his collection of very groanworthy gags at the start of the concerts.

His wife, Sue, and the family were very grateful for the very many messages of support and offers of help at this very difficult time.

Sue, Bobby and Ben have decided that there should be a series of concerts this winter starting with a Tribute to Pat on 3rd November. Please see the calendar for details.

About Us

On the first Wednesday of every month (except December)

at Felpham Memorial Village Hall.

November 2021 to April 2022 Programme

Following the suspension of concerts because of Covid-19 we are planning a series from this November through to April. Because of restricted numbers in the village hall the price has had to be increased to £13. We hope this is sufficient to cover outgoings, if not there may need to be another increment.


Because of the popularity of “Jazz at the Village” seats will be reserved at the time of booking but only guaranteed on receipt of  payment. Booking will be one concert at a time.

To book please contact Sue by Tel: 01243 584932 or use our Contact Form.
e-mail bookings will be acknowledged.

Seats will generally be allocated in order of booking but if you have a preference please Tell us and we will do our best to accommodate your requirement.
