Shoreham’s Ropetackle offers a Boxing Day Jazz Breakfast with Mike Hatchard (Friday, December 26, 11am, tickets £9).

Ropetackle spokesman Mark Phillips said: “Boxing Day celebrations are an annual tradition at Ropetackle, led as ever by our irrepressible jazz-man Mike Hatchard.

“This year he is joined by two legends of the jazz scene to provide the musical icing to your seasonal celebratory cake. Award-winning drummer Bobby Worth and iconic saxophonist Bobby Wellins will join Mike and his quintet, with a healthy provision of mince pies, pastries, mulled wine and the warm and friendly festive spirit of our wonderful volunteers. So start your Boxing Day celebrations at Ropetackle with some magical musical fun.

“Mike’s quintet never swings as hard as on Boxing Day, and the abundance of Christmas crackers guarantees at least a couple of new jokes into his repertoire.”
