Details

From the banks of the Levee, to the French Quarter, New Orleans gave birth to jazz. Louis Armstrong, Lizzie Miles, Jelly Roll Morton, Mahalia Jackson, Wynton Marsalis and Harry Connick Jnr are just a few of the city’s famous sons and daughters. Guy Barker’s Big Band, the BBC Concert Orchestra and a stormin’ line up of jazz vocalists, celebrate ‘The Big Easy’ in the Big Top.

Friday Night Is Music Night on Thursday? YES!

Due to the bank holiday, we’re recording the show on Thursday for broadcast on Friday!

Venue

Henry Westons Big Top

The Henry Westons Big Top is a purpose built venue situated at the heart of Jazz in the Gardens. Constructed in the classic style of a circus big top, the arena is fully lined and offers tiered seating. High quality sound and lighting production enhance the Festival experience inside this atmospheric jazz venue. Each year, the Big Top and Jazz Arena venues play host to a vast array of acclaimed headliners and rising stars throughout the Cheltenham Jazz Festival.

The Henry Westons Big Top capacity increased by 50% to 2,000 seats in 2019, enabling more people to enjoy the most popular events and offering better sightlines to the stage.
