Garden Grooves

August 13 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

£10.00 - £27.00

Tickets for this even have now SOLD OUT, however picnic hamper orders for those already attending are still open!

Join us on August 13th in our gorgeous garden for a summer’s evening of jazz music and cocktails. Jazz Saxophonist, John Martin, and his band will be playing the finest soulful jazz while you enjoy the stunning views across the Limpley Stoke valley, and sip on an American inspired cocktail or two.

“Martin builds improvisations with a fine concern for tonal subtleties, shrewdly making use of multiphonic sounds and advanced fingerings… a distinctive voice and an explorer of restless promise,” John Fordham – The Guardian
