Sax Blue – saxophone quartet in the Convent Garden
Spring saxes in the Garden!
Hear jazz & other classics, particularly jazz music from the early 20th Century, performed in our glorious spring garden by Sax Blue – a saxophone quartet. Perfectly suited for a garden party!
They are a well-known group based in Newcastle, led by Mr Rod Barnes.
Listen to Sax Blue perform ‘Laughin’ Sax’….
You are invited to BYO drinks, picnic food, rugs or low seats and relax in our front garden. A Convent-made afternoon tea will also be served. Additional seats will be provided around the garden. The garden will open at 1.30pm. In case of wet weather, the concert will be held in our Community Room.
