The joint will be jumping at Hitchin’s Market Theatre on Wednesday night when the Sun Street venue hosts its first jazz session of the new year.

The four-piece Gary Wood Swing Band, who specialise in serving up sumptuous standards in a Rat Pack style, are on the bill, summoning up the spirit of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Louis Prima and others.

House band Jazzhouse and resident host Tony Phillips will be on hand to see the session go smoothly.

Tickets are £12, and doors open at 7.30pm for an 8pm start.
