Unfortunately the weather was not too good, the Friday and Saturday before were very wet and windy, however the forecast for the Sunday was OK, but there could be some showers. They started around 3.30 and stopped and then started again.

Finally just after 4 it was too wet to continue till 5.00 - Problems of event organisation outside as on the Monday it was 21 degrees and very sunny, however July 2023 had been very wet.

Jazz in the Park 2023 on a wet and windy Sunday afternoon

Feedback: We and our friends very much enjoyed the afternoon thank you, sadly the sun dance we all did didn't work! but never the less enjoyable between the showers. If it should be organised again for 2024 please keep this email address and let us know.

Many thanks to you and your team for organising the Jazz in the Park. It was once again highly enjoyable in spite of the inclement weather! Could you please pass on a special thank you to Martin Hart for his announcement to not talk about the state of the Wimbledon Final. My wife Jean was very concerned that someone would spill the beans and spoil her plans to catch up on it this evening. However we got home and she was able to watch the whole final on Iplayer without any knowledge of the outcome! Made her a very happy lady!!

I loved the concert, thanks for all your hard work. A.. N...
