Phase two of our Finals Festival, but this time this is Exit Velocity as we launch this year’s leavers into the professional jazz scene. We will miss them but hope to welcome them back in the future for headline gigs at the club. Again, everyone’s a band leader. Our senior students present their own small bands in our special Finals Festival to mark the end of term. There will be a broad definition of jazz to enjoy that’ll include everything from free, be-bop and standards to contemporary arrangements. One ticket gets you in to the whole day so come and hear this new horizon on the jazz scene.
