Great Malvern set for Jazz Festival

Following the success of the first Malvern Jazz Weekend held over Easter 2014, Malvern Hills District Council and Pulse Great Malvern are pleased to announce a second weekend of great modern and contemporary jazz around a variety of venues in the centre of Great Malvern over the weekend of 19 and 20 September 2014. All the performances are free to attend.

Cllr Phil Grove, Economic Development portfolio holder at MHDC said "Great Malvern is looking forward to welcoming the smooth sounds of jazz to the town again. The event over Easter was very popular and we're hoping this weekend will be more so as the word spreads.
