Alton College Jazz Bands

The bands from Alton College in Hampshire have always produced exhilarating performances that have drawn large crowds to the Old Stone Quay.  Many of the students have gone on to study at leading music schools. Among those who have returned to play at the Festival recently have been Laura Jurd and four of the five members of the World Service Project.

This year the bands will be the Jazz Band, led by Laura Jurd, now combining teaching in her old college with her very busy gigging schedule playing a set in Marquee 2, and the big directed by Matthew Findlay.
