End the week with a laid-back evening in the Saffron Hall foyer. A well-stocked bar, food trucks serving a superb selection of street food, plus live music from the Paul Higgs Quintet. Eat, drink, get into the swing and unwind!
Paul Higgs is renowned as one of the UK’s leading trumpet players and composers. Blending the traditions of classical and jazz, he has the rare ability to capture the most elusive of dreams in his music, expressing subtle emotions and bold exciting energy with equal ease. Melodies soar and float, while rich harmonies create shadows and depths beneath.
Paul has had an extensive musical career in many fields including performing, composing and arranging music for film, TV and theatre. He was a Musical Director for many years for the National Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company.
He has performed with luminaries including Sir Peter Maxwell Davis, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Johnny Dankworth, Lulu, Tony Hatch, John Williams, Nancy Wilson and Shorty Rodgers. Paul has also performed in major concert venues around the world, such as the Royal Festival Hall, the Schubert Theatre (USA), Berlin Concert Hall, the Royal Albert Hall and Ronnie Scott’s.
The Saffron Hall bar will be serving from when the doors open at 7pm. This event will finish at approximately 10pm.
