A BRAND new monthly jazz evening is set to take place in Chipping Sodbury.

The Sodbury Jazz Club will launch at the Beaufort Hunt on Broad Street, on February 15 at 8.30pm.

Double-bassist Mike Slade is one of the musicians who will be performing at the pub.

Mike, 83, has been playing the double bass for over 45 years.

He said: "We love jazz and we hope that holding these regular events will help others to enjoy listening to it, as much as we enjoy playing it."

Everyone is welcome to attend, and entry to the evening is free.
