Join us for an afternoon of great live music as we play host to our fourth annual "...Around Town" event, part of Cheltenham's Jazz Festival.
Taking place on bank holiday Sunday 5th May, you can relax knowing you can enjoy yourself with (hopefully for most!) no work in the morning!
As well as live music you'll find outdoor bars and alfresco dining areas so you can sit back and enjoy the music to great food, drink and good company.
This year's fantastic line up includes:
1 – 1.45pm
Gloucestershire based Stolen Chocolates play jazz and blues tunes. Their aim is to find, arrange and play great songs and have some fun whilst doing so.
2.15 – 3pm
Rory McNeill is a jazz singer-songwriter whose rich, baritone voice combines with his lyrical storytelling to present nostalgic but refreshing original music.
3.30 – 4.15pm
This five piece band from the South Wales Valleys deal out their quirky original songs. Think Steely Dan and Average White Band grooves and instantly hummable melodies.
The LM Project

Inspired by Prince, Led Zeppelin and Esperanza Spalding, expect colourful soundscapes and catchy lyrics from Louie Miller and her jazz pop band.
Charlton Blues Kings
