One of the Jazz community’s favourite retreats, Ambleside in the picturesque Lake District in the north of England will see the 2nd edition of the Ambleside Days Jazz Festival. After the overwhelming response to last year’s event, round two will be starting on Thursday 30th August and conclude on Sunday 2nd September 2018.
One of the highlights is bound to be the reprise of the spellbinding Joe Locke–Gwilym Simcock combination.
