Manchester Jazz Festival is the city’s longest-running music festival and The Ivy Spinningfields will be hosting a one-off weekend of live entertainment on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May.
Guests of The Ivy Brasserie will experience in-house jazz music and limited-edition cocktails inspired by the music.
The Manchester Jazz Festival began in 1996 and has been providing a platform for hundreds of musicians each year since. Newcomers and regional jazz artists gain exposure as well as established musicians on the scene. Other venues will include Night and Day, Matt and Phred’s and St Ann’s Church.
The main Festival Hub will be taking over St Ann’s Square all the way up to New Cathedral Street in the city centre from 23 – 27 May.
Saturday’s event at The Ivy will feature a DJ from 1pm – 6pm who will be complemented by a sax percussionist act. Sunday is all about the live jazz and soul trio who will be performing three exclusive shows throughout the afternoon, at 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.
On top of all this, The Ivy Brasserie has created two new cocktails for the event which will be on offer until Monday 27 May. The exciting vodka-based ‘In The Mood’ will combine Chambord, Frangelico, passion fruit puree and cranberry juice. The second cocktail is ‘The Big Easy’ and will incorporate Cognac, strawberry liqueur, lemon juice and Peychaud’s bitters.
The Brasserie serves up modern classics with an eclectic menu containing dishes like The Ivy shepherd’s pie, crab linguine and monkfish and prawn curry with something to suit everyone.
Pair this with some incredible jazz tunes and you’re in for an exciting and unique experience as part of an iconic part of Manchester’s cultural heritage.
