Cheltenham Jazz Festival

My page is about all types of music genres and gigs so I feel the Cheltenham Jazz Festival is a great place to start. If you happen to be a bit of a Jazz fan like myself then this event is without a doubt a MUST...that cannot be missed!

This event has been around for 14years this year and for the first time is bringing in a guest director in the form of jazz legend Jamie Cullum. As well as him there are many other worldwide artists, and for some this will be their only gig this year. Elaine Paige, Imelda May and Paloma Faith are just some of the many artists for this year’s event.

You may well think to yourself 'It’s a Jazz Festival, it’s not my thing' but this may not be strictly true. You don’t have to be a Jazz whizz to enjoy this event. There are many different types of jazz styles that formulate this festival....many of which acquire many people’s tastes. Plus the Town Hall venue in which the festival is held, hosts lots of different attractions throughout the on-going week.

Lastly I must draw attention to the fact that this year at the Jazz Festival a local Cheltenham band will be playing amongst some of those amazing artists. The band Thrill Collin’s who are students of the University of Gloucestershire shall be gracing the same stage as artist Imelda May on Thursday 29th April.
So come and give your local band the support they deserve and visit the Cheltenham Jazz Festival from the 28th April to the 3rd May.
