Must See Mondays – Event of the Week

What: Old Duke Jazz Festival // Where: Old Duke/Kings Street // When: 23rd/24th/25th August // Cost: Free Old Duke Jazz Festival Info: Is there any better way to spend an August Bank Holiday weekend in Bristol than a few bevvies in the sun, with friends, down at the former haunt of slave owners enjoying an annual street festival???? Nope, not possible is it. A firm fixture on most Bristolians summer calendar ‘The Old Duke Jazz Festival’ has been going for 32 years now and this time around it promises to provide the same excellent array of music (jazz is a loose description here), cider and sunshine as it always does. Many hours can be whiled away as the likes of Eddie Martin’s Blues Band (Sunday 9pm to 11pm) and Jeremy Huggett’s Harlem 5 (Monday 9pm to 11pm) seduce us with their siren like sounds of old New Orleans.
