We welcome back our Annual Legends of Jazz Festival, this year drawing inspiration from Chris Batchelor's signature band, on the special theme of Zoetic (meaning “pertaining to life; living; vital” art form). Promoting this Festival is the affirmation of our commitment to jazz as a living, vital musical art form, ever-evolving to engage new & diverse audiences, young & old, from very many different cultures & both genders. The Festival presents bands and musicians with the same commitment to jazz & to diversity. Celebrating the meaning of jazz to life, we will have a varied and diverse demographic range of artists, representing the worldwide influences that jazz encompasses & celebrates; all Legends.
This year there are three free gigs giving a range of lives experiences, with nine ticketed gigs that showcase some of the world class musicians,an array of instruments and all in different styles.
We will be using the 1000 Trades again for the whole Festival. It is warm and welcoming with ease of convenience for the audience and organisers - with all the Festival equipment needed.
We are eternally grateful to the Arts Council and Longrow Finance for their Financial Support - without which the Festival could not take place.
