Thea Gilmore, Nantwich Jazz Festival

Five of the Nantwich Jazz, Blues and Music Festival’s seven headlining acts will be hitting the stage of Nantwich Civic Hall.

Nantwich town centre will welcome tens of thousands of visitors during the five-day festival over Easter weekend, April 2-6.

Among the big names at the Civic Hall is Thea Gilmore & Her Band.

Local girl Thea makes a welcome return following her sell-out success in 2014, opening the show on Thursday April 2.

Singer Andy Featherweather-Low & The Low Riders perform on Friday April 3, and rocking the stage on Saturday April 4 are FM.

  1. I have a ticket to see Thea Gilmore this Saturday 17th October at Malbank theatre which I am very excited about, however the friend that was due to come with me has left it too late to get a ticket and now it’s sold out. Does anyone out there have a last minute spare ticket that I could buy off them please? we’d be so grateful.
