Jazz Festival 2016

As part of the Cheltenham Jazz Festival 2016, we sponsored the sell-out Corinne Bailey Rae event. All members of the CLC community were invited and our tickets, which included a drinks reception in the VIP area beforehand, sold out quickly.

Around 100 girls attended festival events including Corinne Bailey Rae, Lianne Le Havas, Courtney Pine and Zoe Rahman, and Beverley Knight. Three girls were able to go behind the scenes at the rehearsal of Friday Night is Music Night, including a discussion with leader of the Big Band, Guy Barker, the producer and several musicians.

"It was a lot of fun and I especially enjoyed the rehearsal … I got some invaluable information regarding careers in general. I would recommend it, especially for girls who are interested in pursuing a career in media, radio, television or music.” - Juliana Choi, SFC1
