It gets underway on Friday at 5pm and finishes on Sunday at 7pm.

The first gig on our list this month features two bands, the 'New Orleans Jazzy Street Band' and 'Swing My Boy'.

As you'd expect, the New Orleans Jazzy Street Band are primed to bring you sounds straight out of New Orleans. If that doesn't get you going, Swing My Boy will get the dancefloor flexing to their catchy swing and dance music.
