1. Clark Tracey Quintet

Drummer, composer, club organiser and festival director Clark Tracey is a true renaissance man of jazz. He’s also a mentor to young musicians, regularly putting together small groups to showcase emerging talents. Happily for jazz fans in Harrow and Pinner, he’s done it once again with this new quintet, fresh-faced and eager. Clark writes tricky themes and expects his players to respond creatively – and they do. Theirs is vigorous hard bop at its best. Look out for Chris Maddock on alto, Harry Bolt on piano, Daniel Casimir on bass, Henry Armburg-Jennings on trumpet and, of course, Clark himself on the drums.

2. Henry V

For their 64th annual Shakespeare play, the Old Harrovian Players present Henry V in Harrow School’s historic Speech Room. Six hundred years ago this autumn, Henry’s band of brothers followed him into the breach and beyond to face the fearful odds of five to one on the field of Agincourt. Come and see the divided British soldiers achieve greatness following a king with small claim to the throne but a mighty understanding of inspiration.
