A spokesperson said: “Be prepared for a tour of the big band sound, hearing classic swing adaptations of Glenn Miller, Charlie Barnet, Count Basie and modern Hollywood and Disney film favourites.

“Along the way you will hear Sinatra classics as well as recognisable rock songs from the 80s and 90s which have been given the jazz treatment.

“The orchestra also boasts adaptations of John Coltrane compositions as well as the leader’s own interpretations of American song book standards.”

The music starts at 8pm and admission is £5.
