On Saturday 13 July, jazz band The Dixie Strollers will be coming to Cadbury World as part of this year’s Birmingham International Jazz and Blues Festival.
The London-based seven piece band will be performing three shows throughout the afternoon in the Bournville-based attraction’s marquee, and will be joined by Cadbury World’s family entertainers to keep everybody moving and grooving.
The Dixie Strollers’ quirky New Orleans style music has seen them play at some of London’s major jazz venues including Ronnie Scott’s, The Vortex, and the 606 Jazz Club, as well as at the London Jazz Festival and Royal Albert Hall. The band boasts a front line of trumpet, clarinet and trombone as well as a four-piece rhythm section. The Dixie Strollers cite the likes of the Alex Welsh Band and Lois Armstrong as its major musical influences.
Diane Mitchell, marketing manager at Cadbury World, said: “We’re thrilled to be welcoming The Dixie Strollers to Cadbury World this July and can’t wait to see our visitors up on their feet dancing along to their uplifting music.”
In addition to enjoying jazz and family entertainment, visitors will have the chance to explore Cadbury World’s 14 amazing zones. Climb on board the magical Cadabra ride for a gentle journey through a chocolate wonderland before having a go at writing your name in smooth liquid chocolate in the Demonstration Area. Finally, finish your journey in the Essence zone where you can choose your favourite treat to be smothered in warm liquid Cadbury Dairy Milk.
