Spokeswoman Heather Joy said: “Set in the enchanted woodland at the Loxwood Meadow, this boutique festival with a stellar line-up of jazz and blues artists, is running from 12 noon through to 8pm and has only a limited number of 500 tickets available.
“Once again the line-up is impressive, and music lovers will be able to spend an afternoon outdoors, under the boughs of the woodland trees as they become immersed in the sounds.
"This year’s Jazz, Gin & Blues is curated by Simon Bates, the founder and organiser of the legendary Loxwood Jazz Club. And artists such as John Etheridge, Derek Nash’s Sax Appeal, Harry Greene and Ashton Jones, Simply Swing, Tim Staffell and Paul Stewart will be performing live. Not forgetting the gin part of the festival… a number of independent local gin producers such as Cabin Pressure Spirits, Madame Jennifer Distillery, Corner 53 and Generation 11 will be on hand to help quench summer thirsts. In addition, the award-winning Langham Brewery will be providing real ale, with Loxwood Meadworks providing heritage brews, re imagined for the 21st century.
“An exciting mix of local food stalls will also be on hand, offering a selection to suit all palates with crème scones through to sizzling burgers, and tasty vegetarian and vegan options to complete a perfect afternoon. This is a rare opportunity to hear these music legends play live in such an idyllic setting. The promise of another year of great eclectic jazz and blues with a little helping of gin is one not to be missed!”
