The audience were all really buzzing afterwards and we have had some super feedback today too. It’s marvellous to have someone playing our lovely piano like that and please pass on our thanks to your colleagues too. I hope we might entice you back to a future Festival in the not too distant future...

The concert last night was a great success. Some of our audience are not usually jazz concert goers, but many asked on their way out if we could book you again! Such a polished, varied and delightful concert. The arrangements of familiar pieces brought a whole new dimension to them.

Huge thanks to the Dominic Alldis Trio for a wonderful evening. The fusion of classical and jazz styles was imaginatively and skillfully crafted, breathing new life into well loved pieces whilst retaining sensitivity to the original versions.
