We found our #cheltjazzfest photo competition winner!
After many hours of browsing through hundreds of wonderful Cheltenham Jazz Festival memories, we knew there could only be one champion.
As you can imagine, the decision wasn’t easy, but we were absolutely delighted to see so much joy for music in Hayley Clemmens’ snapshot of her kids playing one of our painted pianos in Montpellier Gardens that we had to choose it as our winner.
“This is the second year I have visited Cheltenham Jazz Festival with the children and as you can see from the photo, much of the day was spent with great big smiles on our faces. There is something for everyone and it’s a fantastic atmosphere for all the family, too. We had a great time taking in the sights and sounds of the free stage and we had a picnic rug lunch listening to some excellent local school bands play. There’s some brilliant young talent in Gloucestershire!”
“We really enjoyed exploring and experiencing new sounds and sights. The colourful jazz pianos in particular were a big hit as you can see from the photo which I snapped while the children were busy creating their own music.”
“Who knows in a few years time my little ones might be inspired to take up the piano and I might be back enjoying them perform on the free stage!”
Huge congratulations to Hayley and her family – we hope that you will enjoy a year of Cheltenham Festivals Gold Membership and can’t wait to send you the #cheltjazzfest speech bubble full of signatures from the Festival’s artists, including dedications from Jacob Collier, Imelda May, Guy Garvey, Courtney Pine and many more!
