Celebrated jazz musicians will be appearing alongside local performers and student musicians next month at the TW12 Jazz Festival, now in its second year.

Artists - including the Gwilym Simcock Trio and guitar virtuoso John Etheridge - will take to the stage from 12pm to 10.30pm on Sunday 3 August at the Hampton Hill Playhouse.

The festival's beginnings date back to March 2012 when local pianist Terence Collie and vocalist Janet McCunn teamed up to create a monthly jazz night at local restaurant Retro Bistro.

The nights took off and organisers decided to put on a large scale event last year. They are now planning the TW12 jazz festival will become an annual event.

Terence Collie said: "We wanted to give local jazz musicians and singers an opportunity to share the bill with top international jazz stars and to bring a cultural event of this genre to this part of South West London."
