Jazz in the Park
Our first "Jazz in the Park" was held in 2013. We did not try to emulate the previous mega concerts, but to put on an event that was free for residents and an opportunity for local artists to entertain a picnicing audience. We were amazed at the turnout, but in subsequent years we decided to start at 4:30pm to enable families to come along with their younger children. In 2018 we did clash with England's World Cup semi-final, but it was no problem as our numbers swelled after the final whistle to about 500. An example of live music being able to bring back a smile after disappointment.
Our thanks to all performers and especially John Summerton for organising the audio equipment as well as performing. Nimrod Margalit his group and students, The Daisy Bowlers, Drew-Levi, The Law (Tiv & Andy), Evangeline Brown, Heads UP, Latalia Jeakins and Julie Morgan feature in the credits.
