Jazz on the Parterre
Fri 2 Aug 2019
6.30pm-11pm for Dinner GuestsGrounds
Join us for a brand new event, and enjoy a summer’s evening in our beautiful gardens.
Take a seat and be transported to a café in Paris or New York, as you listen to a set from our jazz quartet. Playing jazz and Latin numbers popular with artists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Nat King Cole, these award winning musicians will provide mellow semi-acoustic music to stroll around the formal gardens.
A glass of prosecco or Pimms is included with your admission, and there is an outdoor bar if you wish to purchase additional drinks. You are welcome to bring a picnic to the jazz event, although please note that tables are not provided.
Why not make a night of it and stay for a two-course dinner package in the Manor Restaurant afterwards?
Dinner starts at 8pm and is an additional £35 per person.
Nigel Price, guitar
Tim Lapthorn, piano
Richard Exall, saxophone
Steven Vintner, drums
The quartet will draw on Latin and jazz standards from the American song book, including pieces from 1920 to the early 1970s.
All the musicians have performed in the legendary Ronnie Scott’s jazz club and between them have won many awards including the 2006 BBC Jazz club millennium award.
