Wood Street Jazz Festival


Huge thanks to everyone who came to the 2020 Wood Street Jazz Festival on Sunday August 23rd this year. With the support of the parish council and with rigorous social distancing measures in place, the event was a fantastic success, attracting over 300 people and raising over £6,000 for the disabled children’s charity Challengers.

Our thanks to the musicians involved, including the wonderful JOANNA EDEN (“the UK’s answer to Norah Jones and Diana Krall” – TIME OUT) , and her Jazz at the Movies band, and the NICOLAS MEIER quartet featuring tenor saxophonist GREG HEATH.

Enormous thanks to our sponsors, Tony Samuels from Surrey County Council, University of Surrey, and Rydes Hill Preparatory School and Nursery, and to Mike Carrington from the Aldershot, Fleet and Farnham Camera Club for the photos below.

“Thank you for a splendid afternoon and for raising such an amazing amount for Challengers! It was thoroughly enjoyable and, as always, Marianne pulled out all the stops to make it such a great event. Roll on the next one!” – Jazz Festival Attendee.

Thank you for all your support, we look forward to seeing you next year!
