A SUNDAY afternoon festival at an organic farm in Whatcroft might just be the perfect way for jazz fans to take five.  

Jazz on a Summer’s Day is a collaboration between Davenham Theatre’s Jazz@Davenham group and Riverside Organic Farm.

On Sunday, July 7, from 2pm to 9pm, Riverside’s main barn will be transformed into a live music venue where on top of the music, visitors can enjoy a well stocked bar, sample the farm’s famous burgers, or pre-order picnics made with its quality produce.

The line-up includes contemporary jazz singer, Megan Lee, performing with the Gaz Hughes Trio, as well as former Sir John Deane’s sax player, Conrad Clenton and his quintet.

These will be followed by the Midnight Jazz Quintet who dabble in the world of Japanese jazz fusion, and to finish, music from pianist Tom Seals with his captivating blend of soul, jazz, and blues.

Courtesy of both Jazz@Davenham and Riverside Organic, Guardian readers have a chance to two free tickets and two free picnics to enjoy on the day. 

To enter the free ticket draw, email robert.goulding@newsquest.co.uk with your full name and telephone number by midnight on Wednesday, July 3. The winner will be picked at random on Thursday, July 4.

Spokesman for the event, Keith Anderson, said: “It's such a great, laid-lack atmosphere at the barn, and we think this year's line-up will give the audience something to really get their teeth into. 

"We’ve gone for a real mix of experienced artists and up-and-coming young talent, including several top conservatoire students who are alumni of our very own Sir John Deane’s Sixth Form College here in Northwich.”

“For anyone worried about the weather, there’s no need as we’ll be under cover the whole afternoon.

“I’d just remind visitors it's essential they bring their own chairs, and as it’s a working farm, no children under 12 or dogs are allowed.”

Tickets can be purchased here, and cost £15 if pre-booked, and £20 for walk-ins.

Keith added as the event hosts supply a great selection of food and drink, guests are asked not to bring their own.
