Jazz Night


Cape Town, the South African ‘City of Jazz’, is home to many well-known jazzmen. Together with the Jazz in the Native Yards team, we aim at showcasing the many facets of Cape Town and international jazz, uniquely rich in its diversity and strong identity. In an intimate setting, we offer an opportunity to appreciate live music and a home-cooked meal, in respect and mindfulness of the performance. Jazz Night at Alliance Française du Cap is a seated concert for which booking is highly encouraged as seating charts and catering are planned based on reservations. 

A regular event at Alliance Française du Cap, join us on the last Friday of the month! Kindly note that, exceptionally, the concert might be held on a different Friday due to public holidays or programme requirements.
