Tony’s Festivals

Hot Jazz, Big Band Swing, Cabaret & Dance

For over 15 years, Tony presented and hosted more than 30 sell-out Music Festivals at South Downs Holiday Village near Chichester. Sadly, South Downs closed its doors a couple of years ago, but Tony continues his ‘Festivals Of Hot Jazz, Big Band Swing, Cabaret & Dance’ for Warner’s Leisure Hotels and Isle Of Wight Tours.

People  regularly travel from all over the UK – and even Sark, Luxembourg and New York! – to enjoy and indulge in some of the best music around and many have become great friends.

2017 and 2018 saw Warner’s Thorseby Hall, Gunton Hall and Cricket St Thomas continuing the Tony Jacobs Music Experience – selling out at each venue. This year (2019) Thorseby Hall in May has sold out and Cricket St Thomas  (August) and Gunton Hall (November) are already selling very well indeed. In 2020, he will be presenting Festivals at these venues AND Warner’s Littlecote House. Here are the dates:

Warner’s Littlecote House on February 17th/18th/19th/20th

Warner’s Thorseby Hall Hotel on May 11th/12th/13th/14th

Warner’s Cricket St Thomas on August 10th/11th/12th/13th

Warner’s Gunton Hall on November 2nd/3rd/4th/5th
