See how they grow! Janet McCunn and Terry Collie started running a TW12 Jazz Festival with a one-day one-location event down in Hampton Hill in 2013. In their third year, the hallmarks – a broad programme, some great names and a deep involvement in the community – are as ever there, but they now are up to three days and three locations, including the Saturday at David Garrick’s riverside temple to Shakespeare from 1756.
