After a long gap due to pandemic restrictions, Wimborne Rotary’s Jazz at the Allendale annual series of big band charity concerts returns to the Allendale Centre at 7.30pm on Thursday 16 September.
Swing Unlimited Big Band, rated by many as Dorset’s finest, will once again provide an evening of classic and contemporary swing. It will feature the music of such greats as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Glenn Miller, and Jools Holland, together with vocals.
Admission is free with tickets available at the doors, which open at 7pm, but with audience numbers dependent on Covid rules at the time. There will be a retiring collection in aid of Rotary charities which it is hoped will be generously supported.
Organiser of the concert, Rotarian Darryl Reach, said: “For the first time in 18 months we are delighted to be able to resume our fund-raising for Rotary charities and provide the opportunity for people to enjoy a foot-tapping evening of live music.
“Inevitably the music business has been one of the hardest hit by the pandemic, with big band fans starved of their favourite entertainment. It is good therefore to be able to bring back our popular series of charity concerts which have so far raised more than £13,000 for local charities.”
