The manager of Foyleside, Fergal Rafferty, says he’s delighted the shopping centre will be hosting a series of free gigs throughout the City of Derry Jazz and Big Band Festival.

He 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 modelling to keep them occupied.

On Thursday, April 28, The Bourbon Swing Jazz Band will be playing at 4pm in the Shopping Centre.

On Friday, April 29, at 1pm it’s The Jive Aces with Gary and Sue Dance Class, followed by the Calgach Singers at 7pm. On Saturday, April 30, it’s the Café Jazz Project at 1pm and Les Swinging Lovers at 2pm. And on Sunday, May 1, Ricky Cool and The In Crowd will perform at 2pm.
