Good Food, Great Jazz

This gives you the opportunity to enjoy jazz in a less formal and more intimate manner.  No festival ticket required - just enjoy your meal and the music.

With the exception of the Cocoa Bean Company the venues in the Jazz Dine-Around are fairly small so if you wish to hear any of the musicians involved, be sure to make an early booking to avoid disappointment.


Live entertainment while you have your meal

Every evening during the Festival local restaurants will be the venues for entertainment in more intimate surroundings where we will be showcasing smaller bands and individual artistes. So book early to avoid disappointment, sit back, relax and enjoy.
