Five fab nights of jazz set to get Woods Restaurant in the swing this spring

In a brand new initiative for award-winning Woods Restaurant, the elegant eatery on The Pantiles will transform into a stunning jazz/bistro bar this spring with the launch of its fabulous five nights of ‘Jazz at Woods on The Pantiles’ this spring.

Local jazz legends will take to the stage for five nights between Thursday 19 April and Thursday 31 May (check for complete listings) with popular acts including John Harriman (of Heads South fame) performing in his Latin Jazz Trio, the popular Kent based jazz masters – the Bob Bernard Duo and the multi-talented Iain Rae Trio.

The five fabulous evenings will run from 7pm and guest can look forward to a tasty three-course bistro supper and two great jazz sets from 7.30-8.30pm and from 9-10pm. The delicious three-course pre-set menu includes a glass of house wine ‘on the house’ for every guest courtesy of owners Sheridan & Karen Wood.

Karen Wood said: “The pre-season spring jazz in Woods Restaurant will be a fabulous warm up to the open air jazz that takes place during the summer on The Pantiles. We are planning to lay the restaurant out informally with long banqueting tables, so it will be a highly sociable and interactive evenings for couples and larger groups to enjoy. There will be the great combination of a delicious, freshly prepared three course supper and some of the finest jazz being performed on the Kent jazz circuit today. We feel incredibly lucky to have all three acts and with 2012 proving a tougher year than most for many, we have kept the costs of the evenings to a minimum.”

Prices are just £20 a head which includes entry, three course supper and a glass of wine. Pre-booking is essential as demand is expected to be high.
