Isle of Wight hosting music events this weekend

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays this weekend could take in a pair of music events that are set to take place over the course of the next three days.

Those who are into jazz will be likely to head to the Apollo Theatre in Newport on Sunday (December 18th) in order to see some of the island's top musicians perform together.

A free jazz session will be starting from 19:30 GMT and is being hosted by Newport Jazz Club, while a raffle will also be put on during the night's entertainment, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

People wishing to go along to the show can buy tickets in advance, or simply turn up at the venue on the night to enjoy the music.

The event has been put on in order to mark the end of what has been a successful year for Newport Jazz Club, which has also organised a range of gigs to be held in the coming days.

Jim Thorn Trio and guests will be performing at the Wight Mouse Inn, Chale, on December 28th, while another show will be held at the Apollo Theatre next year.

Jazz legend Digby Fairweather will play with The Unity Stompers at January 15th in an evening that could be attended by those on Isle of Wight holidays.

Meanwhile, a carol concert is taking place tonight (December 16th) at St Saviour's Church in Shanklin, with harpist Jenny Broome also performing with the group of singers.

Ryde Chorus will be appearing on stage with soprano soloist Grace Crumplin, the head chorister at All Saints’ Church, Ryde, for a performance of A Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten from 19:30 GMT.

Wine and mince pies will also be supplied to the audience - who are encouraged to take part in the singing - at the interval of the show, the news provider reports.

Tickets are available on the door and families on Isle of Wight holidays were informed children will be able to enter the venue for free.
