GBH Big Band’s legendary Christmas concert is back to fill your stockings with seasonal jazz, a classy mix of big band fayre and a host of cracking surprises. ‘Tis the season to be jolly and friends from the world of jazz join GBH to celebrate in their 20th birthday year in this annual cracker of a concert.
It is looking quite unlikely that we will be able to hold the course as currently planned, however, we are currently in discussion with Wiltshire Music Centre and will also explore with them the potential for postponing the event to a later date.
A great local gig, with international names, Iain Ballamy and Jason Rebello. Not to be missed!
