This is an open & public workshop/performance session exploring the nature and practice of free improvisation in music through a mixture of; the playing of the music, discussion, and simple workshop routines.

If this is new to you and you want more information, complete the short form in the footer of this page.

All levels of ability and experience are welcome.


The current session format is:

  • A series of small group improvisations. Duration 5 -10 minutes each.

  • There is some conversation & discussion between the pieces.

  • There is a social break of 15 minutes at the midway point.

  • Currently, there are no workshop type strategies or games, scores or contemporary compositions. The musicians play free improvisation in music in their own time.

The future design and content of the Jigsaw events will be shaped by those who are involved, attend the sessions and share their feedback. 

The session, the first of a series, has been organised by Simon Partridge & Phil Morton who are looking forward to meeting you; hearing your music and sharing your ideas.


Please arrive and be ready to start at 6.45 pm - the session starts at 7.00 pm
