The Vortex is a true “club” and community. It’s more than just a small venue. You notice that from the moment that you walk through the door and chat with your neighbours, our volunteers or the musicians at the bar. Our members are our friends! It’s a club that encourages new work, new projects and more. Without a venue like the Vortex, jazz and indeed all music would be poorer. Not for nothing is the club highly rated in polls and lists of venues.


Becoming a member is a great way to support the Vortex and help us keep our position as a key player in the broader community of jazz. And, what’s more, you can gain benefits from regular attendance.

Members help us sustain our status as a not-for-profit organisation and are key to helping us provide a stage for performances that challenge Britain’s cultural mainstream, night after night. You can buy a membership for yourself or as a gift for the music nutter in your life, and know that you’re helping us survive.

We appreciate our members at the club and welcome feedback. Even the small membership charge helps us in terms of regularly keeping the club going. And if you are not able to come so regularly we love to know that you support us. And indeed we have members from around the globe, who rarely attend the club, but give us a boost.
