Event Description

Come and support your local heated open air pool and see the living British jazz legend Courtney Pine in Hampton! This world class artist and his amazing band are to play a rare concert by the pool.

Courtney Pine at his thrilling 2008 concert at Hampton Pool

No-one better embodies the dramatic transformation in the British Jazz scene over the past twenty years than Courtney Pine. The saxophonist heads a new generation of exciting and innovative musicians who have chosen to turn their talents to the demanding requirements of jazz music.

Tonight’s show will feature material from his latest album, Transition In Tradition (a tribute to Sidney Bechet), arguably his best album and work to date. His latest band features Zoe Rahman on piano, Cameron Pierre on guitar, Omar Puente on violin, Darren Brown on bass and Robert Fordjour on drums who are all distinguished musicians on the jazz circuit with their own bands.

Courtney was awarded a C.B.E for services to music in the 2009 New Year's Honours.

This is an incredible opportunity to see an artist of this calibre. Book tickets here online today!

If you've never been to one of our picnic concerts we think you will be in for a pleasant surprise. Unlike other local concert venues, Hampton Pool is small and intimate, situated on the edge of Bushy Park. Staged in a natural bowl in the grass by the pool, wherever you choose to sit you will have a fabulous view of the stage and be wowed by the acoustics. The atmosphere is truly unique.

So bring along a picnic, a rug or folding chair, and gather your friends up for a great evening’s entertainment.

And don’t forget our ticket prices include
a free swim before the show.
