Per­fect day for jazz and teddy bears

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

GUILD­FORD will come alive with mu­sic next month as the Guild­ford Jazz Fes­ti­val and En­twined in the Val­ley be­gins.

There is some­thing for the whole fam­ily, in­clud­ing the lit­tle ones, with the in­au­gu­ral Teddy Bear’s Pic­nic to be held at Wes­ley Chapel and Gar­dens.

The event will in­clude a jazz con­cert by well-known band Za­zou in­side the chapel and a af­ter­noon pic­nic out­side in the gar­den area.

Fes­ti­val co-or­di­na­tor Sue Thomp­son said the pic­nic was a chance to share beau­ti­ful mu­sic and bring peo­ple into Guild­ford.

“We’re hop­ing to get peo­ple to visit Guild­ford and ap­pre­ci­ate the her­itage value of this area, es­pe­cially Wes­ley Chapel, which is over 160 years old,” she said.

“It’s the first time we’ve had the teddy bear’s pic­nic and the rea­son we de­cided to start it is tra­di­tional jazz is linked to teddy bears and there’s even a jazz song called Teddy Bear’s Pic­nic.”

The pic­nic is free, with fam­i­lies en­cour­aged to bring blan­kets and chairs on the day, with drinks and pic­nic ham­pers avail­able for pur­chase to sup­port the restora­tion of the chapel.

The Teddy Bear’s Pic­nic will run from 3pm to 5pm on Oc­to­ber 14 at Wes­ley Chapel and Gar­dens in Guild­ford.
