For over 15 years, Tony presented and hosted more than 30 sell-out Music Festivals at South Downs Holiday Village near Chichester. After South Downs closed its doors several years ago, Tony continued 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. In 2019 Thorseby Hall in May sold out as did Cricket St Thomas in August and Gunton Hall in November. In 2020, he was due to present Festivals at these venues AND Warner’s Littlecote House (see below). Littlecote was a huge success but sadly, due to Covid, the Festivals at Thoresby Hall and Cricket St Thomas were cancelled. At the time of writing, Gunton Hall is due to go ahead (fingers crossed!)
