Watford residents can experience the joy of jazz next month when the Watford Jazz Junction festival comes to town.
Organisers promoted the four-day festival taking place between May 19 and 22 with several live performances on the train from Euston to Watford Junction.
Sensational clarinet player Adrian Cox performed a series of jazz tunes to promote the four-day festival which is a first for the town.
There will be a series of events suitable for all ages taking place across in several venues Watford.
Chris Newstead, founder of the Watford Jazz Junction, explains more about the launch: “We want to give a flavour of the incredible talent we’re putting on at the upcoming festival, whilst showing how well-connected Watford is. And rather than seeing lots of our amazing local musicians taking the 20-minute journey to the capital to play at Ronnie Scotts or the Albert Hall, it’s nice to be able to reverse things and keep them here in Watford for at least one weekend!
“We have worked hard to find the right venues so that people from all walks of life have the opportunity to connect with superb music in places they already know and love. After two years of lockdown, I like to think we might all want to give Netflix the night off and have a great night out right here in Watford with our friends and families, sharing in the highest quality music.”
Cole Braithwaite, area station manager at Watford Junction, at London Northwestern Railway, added: “It’s great to see such an exciting event come to life – particularly after the last couple of years we have all experienced. We couldn’t be happier to have joined forces with the Watford Jazz Junction and can’t wait to see the reaction of passengers as their travels are brightened by Adrian’s music. It’ll sure be a morning they don’t forget!
“Watford is a brilliant town with plenty to be explored, and with great train connections to both London Euston and Birmingham – it’s certainly one for travellers to add to their bucket lists.”
