Stephen Hyde of Herts Jazz writes: “This will be the fourth Herts Jazz Festival. It will have a similar format to last year’s which was so popular, with free of charge sessions in the foyer during the session intervals and after hours. One big difference is that for the first time there will be ALLOCATED SEATING at no extra cost.”
