Weekend of entertainment at Touchwood

By Chris Willmott 13/07 Updated: 13/07 10:48

TOUCHWOOD is getting ready to welcome some of the region’s most talented musicians this weekend as it plays host to Birmingham’s annual Jazz and Blues Festival.

From today (Friday) to Sunday 15 July, Touchwood will be showcasing the talents of some of the best acts in the festival. Toe-tapping tunes will fill the centre, as the talented musicians play plenty of jazz and blues classics for residents to enjoy, getting the summer season into full swing.

Guests who come along will be treated to performances from one of the UK’s top Gypsy Jazz Guitarists, the Remi Harris Trio, a live set by the American-born, West Midlands-based Tom Hill Trio, and a session by the winners of the 2009 International Gypsy Guitar Festival, Inspector Gadjo.

The centre is also encouraging people to put on their dancing shoes tomorrow (Saturday) as part of the Solihull Dance Festival.

Touchwood’s team of trained dancers will be on hand from 10am to 4pm to get guests in the dancing mood, with a number of free Zumba and Latin-inspired routines.

Guests will be invited to watch the demonstrations, pick up a few new steps, and then put their moves into practice with a series of fun dance workshops.

The free sessions will take place in Touchwood’s dedicated dance space in the Map Room, and there will be something to keep dancers of all ages and abilities entertained.
