About the artists

Currently Head of Jazz Composition at the Royal Academy of Music (RAM) and Head of Jazz Voice at The Brussels Royal Conservatoire, Pete Churchill has also had a long and distinguished career as a performer. This includes a few years as a West End Musical Director, a decade and a half as Mark Murphy's accompanist, conductor of Kenny Wheeler's big band and tours with Sheila Jordan. Pete was also Founder/Director of the award winning London Vocal Project and this has led to vocal collaborations with Bobby McFerrin, Johnny Dankworth, Norma Winstone, Kenny Wheeler, Mica Paris and, most recently, the late, great Jon Hendricks.

Immy Churchill, now in her second year at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music, is fast becoming the one to watch on the London jazz scene. 

Ample parking is available on site. The Function Room is accessed through the main hotel reception.
