Jazz Heritage Wales is a unique collection of recordings, photographs, books, stage gowns, artefacts and memorabilia, providing full access to students, researchers, media and general public. Talks and lectures can be given for communities groups and academic conferences, and our exhibitions will continue to tour. The performance side will be retained under the women in Jazz banner, running workshops and school tours.
