Harron Homes Back Huddersfield Jazz Festival

We are delighted to announce that we have donated £500 to Huddersfield Jazz Festival to support their 30 years’ celebrations, taking place at the Lawrence Batley Theatre on 21st September 2018 at 7:30pm.

Formed in 1988, Huddersfield Jazz is a non-profit making organisation, run by a small group of jazz enthusiasts. Their aim is to provide live jazz featuring a variety of the best national and international musicians, as well as providing opportunities for newly-emerging players. The aim of September’s event is to celebrate the groups anniversary with a special one-off concert featuring Claire Martin OBE.

Ranked as one of the finest Jazz vocalists on the planet by the Jazz Times, seven times British Jazz Awards winner, Claire Martin will be joined on stage by ‘The Godfather of Swing’, Ray Gelato and accompanied by the Dave Newton Trio. Claire and Ray will present their show A Swinging Affair, which celebrates their latest album release, “We’ve Got A World That Swings”.

Sylvia Collins of Huddersfield Jazz said:

“We are so grateful for the donation from Harron Homes. The money will really help us to promote our September event and spread the word about Huddersfield Jazz and our initiatives.

“We are hoping the event will be a huge success and also make some money for us, so we can continue to bring top acts to Huddersfield.”
