SHREWSBURY DJANGO FEST
THE LION HOTEL
THE UK GYPSY JAZZ EVENT OF THE YEAR - PRESENTING LEGENDS OF THE DJANGO WORLD
IMPORTANT UPDATE - WE ARE CLOSELY FOLLOWING THE CURRENT PANDEMIC AND OF COURSE NEED TO PROTECT THE HEALTH OF THE AUDIENCE AND MUSICIANS FIRST. A VERY DIFFICULT SITUATION FOR A NEW FESTIVAL IN IT'S FIRST YEAR WITH A BRILLIANT LINE UP. UNLESS SOMETHING CHANGES IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS IT'S LOOKING LIKELY WE'LL BE POSTPONING THE FESTIVAL UNTIL SOME POINT IN 2021, IN THIS CASE WE'LL BE CONTACTING TICKET HOLDERS INDIVIDUALLY.
This isn't the post i'd ever imagined i'd have to be writing for the Shrewsbury Django Fest website. If you wish to be kept up to date please join our mailing list below.

Shrewsbury's most famous hotel, The Lion, is the perfect venue for this years inaugural Shrewsbury Django Fest. We know the beautiful, historical concert hall has the ideal acoustics to host the main performances taking place over the weekend. Even Paganini graced the Adam Ballroom stage in one of his last public concerts many years ago, Stéphane Grappelli stayed at the hotel after his late 1980's Shrewsbury appearance. Other famous guests include The Beatles and Charles Dickens. Good local real ales will be available as well as guitar demos, CD stalls, gigs in the hotel bar, jam sessions going throughout the hotel and other venues in the town and also a gypsy jazz retreat weekend where guitar and violin students can sign up for a dream weekend to learn directly from the best in the world!
