2014 sees the fourth Herts Jazz Festival which we plan to be better than ever. We are adopting the same format as 2013 which was so popular with our audiences. All of the gigs will be in the main theatre with free sessions in the brand newly refurbished 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.

Gig of the year 2013: Reuben James Trio at the Herts Jazz Festival. Jazzwise magazine.
