The world famous, legendary, one and only, Lichfield Christmas Special!

Led by Nick Dewhurst, this is a superb way to celebrate Christmas! Nothing beats a Christmas Big Band!

A Lichfield Arts spokesman said ‘Jazz concerts at the Cathedral Hotel are always something a little bit special. We book the finest musicians and improvisers we can, attracting big names, as well as giving the spotlight to some fine local talents as well. This concert will be memorable, with Jazz standards, a few originals, and some special Christmas and festive favourites thrown into the mix. This concert is already proving to be very popular, so we suggest buying your tickets soon to avoid disappointment’.
