2015 sees our fifth Herts Jazz Festival. We are adopting the same format as the last two years which was so popular with our audiences. All of the gigs will be in the main theatre with free sessions in the foyer at lunchtime, early evening and after hours.

“Herts Jazz Festival is everything a weekend jazz festival should be. The venue is excellent and it’s customer-friendly, with decent food and plenty of relaxed chatting space.” Peter Vacher, London Jazz News.
