Started in 1990: ‘Running from mid day on Friday until late on Sunday evening, the programme explores jazz from the first 40 years, with special jam sessions in the Victory Pub in the wee small hours! All concert themes are chosen by the musicians themselves ... The Festival showcases music that you won't hear anywhere else. Alongside regular classic jazz staples are the music and musicians seldom featured at other festivals. The concert takes place in 4* luxury, with assigned seating of 8 to a table. We rotate the tables twice a day so that nobody gets a poor view.‘ Held Early NovemberALERT Website inaccessible at Review; cited Facebook Page instead.

Founded 1911: ‘We perform two musicals each year usually in November and April taking up to six months in rehearsals twice a week. We currently have about 100 members but are always looking for new talent so if you can sing and dance (just a little!) and wish to join us, then get in touch ... The Next Generation started its first season with 16 members and since them we have had as many as 50 a season. We cater for young people between the ages of 9-16 and our aim is to allow them to learn everything they need to know about singing, dancing and acting, Not only will members have fun being creative, learning to perform also helps improve communication and teamwork skills, and broadens young people's horizons through new experiences’.
