Saturday visit by the Bentley Drivers Club
May Bank Holiday Weekend started with a visit from the Mid West Bentley Drivers Club who were touring around Wales. It was a great opportunity to see some absolutely classic and fantastic Bentley cars.
The Bentley Drivers Club was founded more than 70 years ago by enthusiasts to be a meeting point for like-minded individuals and all Bentley drivers are welcome.
Sunday Jazz in the afternoon:
A fantastic afternoon of Gypsy Jazz and food. Thanks go to Aberjazz for their help in organising the band. The price included a pork roll with salad or vegetarian alternative and visitors enjoyed a glass of local beer, cider or wine while listening to the music.
Swingology were formed in 2005 by 5 musicians based in Crosby, Liverpool, to play the toe-tapping music known as Gypsy Jazz. This style became famous in the 1930s and 1940s, popularised by the great Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, The band not only plays all the Gypsy Jazz standards, but a range of popular Jazz classics and some modern songs in the classic Swing Manouche style (the original term used for Gypsy Jazz)
