The Jazz Festival comes to Foyleside

Foyleside Shopping Centre will be celebrating the City of Derry Jazz and Big Band Festival with Jazz Hands this year with their own programme of events.

A fun-packed weekend is in store for shoppers with entertainment for the whole family as the centre gets involved in what has become the most popular festival in Derry City and Strabane District Council’s calendar.

Fergal Rafferty, Centre Manager for Foyleside Shopping Centre said: “The Jazz Festival is renowned for live music and it’s great for Foyleside to be involved in what is an amazing annual showcase for both local and national talent.

“We have a great mix of musicians lined up and can’t wait for people to stop and listen to them while shopping in our 50 stores packed full of famous brands; there should be an amazing buzz around the centre!”

And the kids won’t miss out either with everything from costume characters, face painting and balloon modeling to keep them occupied.
