About the Event

PLEASE NOTE: We had planned to run this workshop on 22 May 2021, but along with our other festival programme, had to cancel due to Covid-19 restrictions. We will be working with George to ensure that the workshop will run again in 2022.

Renowned jazz drummer, George Double, will take talented local students through a journey to explore and better their own techniques. Everyone is welcome to attend, watch and even join in!

George's playing and recording credits include Dame Shirley Bassey, Grammy Award Winner Jack Jones, Marc Almond, Mica Paris, Ruthie Henshall and Kym Mazelle. His West End and touring theatre record includes stints on Wicked, Guys and Dolls, Avenue Q, Sinatra and Anything Goes.

He is active on the British jazz scene and appears regularly at Ronnie Scott’s club in London and elsewhere as a freelancer (with John Etheridge, Digby Fairweather, Ray Gelato, Derek Nash, Alan Barnes, Scott Hamilton, Tina May, Don Weller, Art Themen, The Joe Loss Orchestra and many others). 

He is also curator of Hadleigh and Southwold Jazz Clubs. George is a senior drum kit consultant for Trinity College London.

This workshop will be confirmed with date and time as part of our 2022 programme across the weekend 19-22 May.
