West Berks business gives back to the community with free entertainment nights
There's free jazz on offer tonight at Herongate, Hungerford.
Swing gypsy jazz quartet Cafe Zazous recently kicked off the Honesty Group’s latest venture into the world of live entertainment with ‘Honesty Live’ at Honesty at Herongate in Hungerford. It was such a hit, the group have announced fortnightly music and comedy nights throughout the summer.
Tonight (Thursday, June 9) it's Stuart Henderson and the Jazz Trio - a great choice following the Queen’s Jubilee Weekend celebrations. For almost 20 years, Stuart was principal trumpet player for the Scots Guards Band in Her Majesty’s Household Division and played many times for the royal family.
This latest venture is something the founder of the business Romilla Arber has been wanting to do for sometime.
She said: "I’ve been keen to create a cultural hub at Honesty at Herongate and the first live event did not disappoint. Cafe Zazous were the perfect band to kick things off, and thankfully, we had a great audience to enjoy the music and the delicious bar snacks and drinks.
"The space at Herongate is ideal for this type of event, and after such a difficult few years it’s wonderful to be able to host live music within the community. We want these events to be a place for people to come together and enjoy the entertainment, which is why we have made them free and open to everyone.
"Giving back to the community is an important part of the business and one of Honesty’s values."
The next gig on Thursday, June 23 will be local singer songwriter Lily Beck, who is a hugely popular artist, having performed pop, blues, jazz and funk songs to audiences over the last 16 years.
