Classical Jazz 2005: Home

John Petters invites you to

The Biggest and brightest Jazz Festival Residential Breaks in the UK

We have been producing jazz festival breaks for 14 years in top quality hotels and holiday villages all over the UK.

Our events are unique, designed and programmed personally by John Petters, with the emphasis on high quality musicians who know how to entertain.

Our festivals are not rigidly rooted in one style - indeed you can expect to hear the complete traditional jazz spectrum from early Ragtime, New Orleans, Harlem Stride, Dixieland, Classic Jazz, Swing, Classic Blues, Mainstream and songs from the great American Songbook. Modern Jazz, however will not be found at our events. What’s more - all our festivals are non-smoking in the performance areas. Provision is however made for people wishing to smoke, subject to legislation.
