Cheltenham Jazz Festival to host free ...around town performances

After launching in 2016, Cheltenham Festival's …around town programme returns to the town's pubs, clubs and streets, offering more than 90 free events during the spring Jazz Festival.

Cheltenham Jazz Festival will see more than 90 free events at popular venues across town this spring as part of its …around town programme.

Taking place alongside the festival from Wednesday 26 April to Monday 1 May 2017 the …around town events offer the chance to experience free entertainment on the streets of Cheltenham and at a number of popular venues.

Returning for another year will be Jo Whiley with the BBC Music Introducing showcase of the best jazz bands from across the country; while the ever-popular Free Stage in Montpellier Gardens will also be at the heart of the Jazz Festival.

A new highlight for 2017 will be a New Orleans House Party at popular bar and restaurant Bottle of Sauce, featuring pop-up performances throughout the day on Saturday 29 April 2017 and two live bands in the evening.

Other venues taking part include The Lucky Onion’s The Tavern and No. 131, pizza, pie and cider haven The Stable and stylish bar The Clarence Social.

Speaking of the initiative, festival director Ian George said: ‘The …around town programme continues to go from strength to strength, with over 90 free concerts. From high street stages to pubs, and from banks to churches, we hope to immerse the town in music for six days.’
