An evening of Forest Jazz Cabaret

The popular event, which was attended by pupils, staff and friends of Forest, took place in the Dining Hall which was transformed for one night, cabaret style.

The audience was treated to the sounds of the Big Band under the expert guidance of Phil Knights and Simon Golding and also featured sets from the Senior Jazz Ensemble and Charlie and the Louis’.

Alongside Forest talent, the evening featured special guests The Big Shake-up, whose international- influenced performance was greatly enjoyed by the audience.

Ahead of the concert, members of The Big Shake-Up spent time with Forest pupils in a New Orleans’ jazz, Latin, funk, pop and swing workshop.
