This year's Jazz Day was a corker. Click to find out more about the day.
It was a great day for being in Chipping Norton with lovely weather and superb music wherever you went. Even outside there were walking (or sitting!) bands in the lower Market Place, while more music could be found in cafes and pubs around the town where there were great free gigs.
In the afternoon there was a superb Schools' Bands concert for a minimal entry fee.
In the evening, the Innovations Jazz Orchestra laid on a great concert in the Town Hall to top off a memorable day.
All the profits from the day will be donated to charity by the Rotary Club of Chipping Norton who staged the day for the 17th year. This year the proceeds will be going to Home Stsart Banbury and Chipping Norton, to the ACE Children's Centre in Chipping Norton and to rotary Charities.
Over the past 10 years, the Rotary Club of Chipping Norton have raised
