The Brewery Quarter is preparing for the return of the prestigious Cheltenham Jazz Festival and its fantastic Around Town events! Returning to the Quarter for the forth year on bank holiday Sunday 5th May, the Around Town Jazz Festival Event provides a flavour of the main event - all for FREE, with six amazing acts taking to the stage throughout the course of the day!
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. You can relax knowing you can enjoy yourself with (hopefully for most!) no work in the morning!
