Enjoy this year's Midsummer Jazz

Anyone planning a visit to the Isle of Wight in the coming weeks might head along to an evening of fantastic musical entertainment as part of the fifth annual Midsummer Jazz.

Gates to the event will open from 16:00 BST on June 22nd and guests will be treated to live performances by some jazz greats.

The bill already contains the legendary Kenny Ball’s Jazzmen with Keith Ball, while other artists set to take part this year include the Jive Aces and Tipitina.

Tickets for the show will cost £17 if bought in advance and £20 on the day, with visitors not only enjoying some fantastic music, but also treating their taste buds to hot and cold refreshments via the many stalls and BBQ vendors that will be in attendance.

It promises to be a great day of fun for fans of jazz, with revellers also able to enjoy a drink or two at the Jazz Bar - serving a range of real ales, local ciders and other local brews.

Running well into the night, Midsummer Jazz will be held at the Havenstreet Steam Railway and is surely an island attraction that will have music lovers crying out for more as they enjoy a picnic beneath the stars.

Meanwhile, anyone planning a trip to Newport next month might like to check out the Stompin' Dave's Blues3 that will be taking place at Quay Arts on July 5th.

The show will get underway from 19:00 BST and will see performances from Stompin' Dave Allen, Earl Jackson and Sam Kelly - three of the most influential and popular blues artists in the UK today.

Showcasing a host of classic blues tunes, as well as their unique improvisational skills, the trio offer fans of blues and roots a night that they are sure to remember. Admission will cost £14 on the door or £12 if tickets are purchased in advance.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801595825-ADNFCR
