The world-famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London is celebrating its 60th birthday with an all-star gala at the (slightly bigger) Royal Albert Hall on October 30th (the exact date it was opened in 1959 on Gerrard Street in Soho). Proceeds from the show will go to the Ronnie Scott’s Foundation, their music education charity which works with underprivileged children in the UK and abroad.

Star performers confirmed for the event include Georgie Fame with his special guests Sir Van Morrison and saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis, plus there will be appearances from Kurt Elling, Courtney Pine, Madeleine Bell, Imelda May and Jazz FM’s own Ian Shaw, all playing with members of the Ronnie Scott’s house bands.

Co-owner of Ronnie Scott’s, Sally Greene OBE, told Jazz FM: "I am so proud to be a part of both Ronnie Scott's amazing history and its bright future. Over the past 60 years Ronnie's has welcomed many incredible artists; from legends of Jazz to lesser known rising stars. Our birthday at the Royal Albert Hall will be a unique evening showcasing our love of Jazz on a grand scale to our long-standing patrons and future generations of music lovers."
