  • As regular visitors to the Gresham Hotel for the jazz festival, you can imagine our absolute surprise and delight when Georgie Fame guested with the equally superb Zagreb Trio in the Rythm Room on Sunday afternoon. Well done to the festival club organisers and in conclusion, we look forward to more of the same talent next year
