One of the most popular dates not just in the festival calendar, but also the Petworth calendar, described as ‘one of the happiest nights of the year’....
Three fabulous bands take to the stage in this annual celebration of good times, great jazz and not a little dancing. Topping the bill is the hugely charismatic Si Cranstoun and his band, a genuine star in the making, with support from a group where the clue is in the name – The Dynamo Quartet. Proceedings kick-off at 6pm in the hands of festival regulars, the young musicians of the West Sussex Youth Big Band.
There will be a bar selling wine, Langhams ale and soft drinks.
Hot drinks, hot and cold food, bakery and ice cream will be available from The Hungry Guest.
Please note that the auditorium is outside so do dress appropriately for the weather. Fixed unreserved seats are provided.
