Countdown to Jazz and Blues picnic

LCDI Staff and Volunteers are putting the final pieces together for their annual family fun day and picnic as part of the up and coming ‘Jazz & Blues Festival’.

General manager, Damien Corr says the afternoon event is fast becoming a family favourite at the “increasingly popular festival”.

“The family fun day and jazz picnic takes place in the impressive grounds of the former Roe Valley Hospital,” said a spokesperson for the LCDI organising committee. “We’re delighted to have secured the world famous, Martello Jazz Band. The Dixieland outfit features some of the best Jazz musicians on these islands.”

The LCDI event is free and “family friendly”.

“Refreshments are available at family friendly prices and guests are welcome to bring their own if they so choose. In addition to the fantastic music there is a funfair and a range of other activities guaranteed to keep the kids occupied and entertained,” added the spokesperson.

The event is on Saturday 9th June 2012, starting at 1pm, with free and secure parking.
