Join us for Music in the Museum: Jazz as The Culture Trust Luton in partnership with Focus of Jazz presents the very best of jazz.

A music performance taking place in the stunning Drawing Room, surrounded by the museum's unique art collection and with spectacular views overlooking Wardown Park.

Line up:

Paul Jolly with Sothiac

An exciting and unusual project from clarinettist and saxophonist Paul Jolly and renowned Italian group ‘Sothiac’

‘The vocals are astounding as they soar creating swirling, achingly beautiful wreaths of sound... It is an experience listening to this music, the vocals powerful, exploratory, the electronics and percussion temporal yet permanently present and the bass clarinet offering melodic phrases which counter the spiritual vocals with a sense of grounding. It is quite extraordinary how listenable this is, the sense of the lost, wandering spirit over grounded bass, and the knowledge that because this music inspires the imagination, everyone will have different images when they hear it.’

Sammy Stein ‘The Jazz Collective’

Running Time: 120 minutes

Please note: You do not require a physical ticket to attend this event. Please just show us your booking confirmation email upon arrival - either on your smart phone or a printed copy.

Wardown House

Wardown House, Museum and Gallery is situated in the beautiful landscaped Wardown Park, on the outskirts of Luton town centre. The house was formerly the home of the Scargill family, then a military hospital and is now a museum and gallery.

Step back in time and glimpse an insight into a wealthy family home during the Victorian period. Explore the different rooms with hands-on displays for a fully immersive experience. The museum tells the story of Luton’s transformation into the exciting and diverse town it is today.

The museum also houses a range of displays throughout the building, including the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Regiment Gallery and the popular Luton Life Gallery.

The museum underwent a redevelopment during 2016, reopening in April 2017. Wardown House, Museum and Gallery also holds events and activities for all ages and interests throughout the year.
