Local Big Band joins Upton’s annual Jazz night
Famous Jazz musician Louis Armstrong once said “There is two kinds of music, the good & the bad. I play the good kind.” Well the same can be said of the Great Central Big Band. Local to Upton House we are delighted for them to be headlining our annual jazz concert this year.
With no less than 20 members and a huge selection of instruments from drums to saxophone, including the flute, clarinet, trombone and trumpets. They will take us on a jazz journey from the 1920s right through to modern day, with some old classics and more modern greats. Join in the singing and dancing on the vast lawn at Upton on Saturday 7thJuly, perfect for a family evening out.
Cotswold Distillery will also be on hand to showcase some master classes on making the perfect Gin cocktail. Why not bring a picnic, treat yourself to a drink from the bar and relax on the grass on a lovely summer evening?

This bank holiday weekend, Upton House welcomes the beautiful Three Belles to perform in the gardens as part of the Banking for Victory wartime project currently in the house.
Join us on Saturday 29 August to get in the party mood, bring a picnic, listen to great music and have a dance as the sun sets on the lawn as you are transported back to that great era of music.
The Three Belles are a professional 1940s vocal trio inspired by The Andrews Sisters. They have performed at IOW Fest, West End Live at Trafalgar Square, The Royal Albert Hall, The Ritz and The Savoy and featured on The Alan Titchmarsh Show, BBC South Today and The X Factor Talk Talk Ad, ITV’s ‘Inside The National Trust’ and ‘The Evening Show’ on London Live.
Victoria Wright, Events and Marketing Manager said, ‘We are delighted to welcome The Three Belles for a glamourous evening of drinks, dancing and picnicking in the grounds of Upton. The bank staff who lived here during the war would have listened to this type of music on the wireless in the sitting room and would never have imagined it would have been played out on the terrace in 2015!’
