Following on from his great success last year, Jamie returns this year as Guest Director for the second year running. Plus Jamie will also be performing his own set. Having attended myself last year, I promise you, you wont want to miss this!!
Jamie returns to the Cheltenham stage for a unique set of previously unheard music in a one off solo show. The master entertainer will doubtless be at his energetic best for this special performance with just him and his piano for company.
The Jazz Festival will run from 27th April – 2nd May, and if you are a member you can buy your tickets before anyone else from 21- 27th February 2011.
