A NEW jazz festival is being organised for Thornbury, with musicians and singers set to entertain audiences next spring.

Those behind the inaugural event have promised a range of music to appeal to a wide variety of tastes.

It will take place on Saturday, March 10, with the opening early evening concert provided by Thornbury Swing Band.

Its members play instrumental and vocal numbers from the 1930s right up to modern times, with a line-up of saxophones, trombones, trumpets and male and female vocalists, all supported by a rhythm section of bass, guitar, keyboard and drums. 

The festival will continue with acts such as the Mark Randall Six, singer Jessica Radcliffe with the Park Row Five and the Class Act Trio, all performing in a jazz café setting in the Armstrong Hall.

Ticket prices will range from £6 for the swing band concert to £18 for the whole event. 

Further information will be released later but music fans can also phone 01454 412272 for details.

Thornbury Jazz Festival is part of the phase one fund raising efforts to improve the Armstrong Hall.
