Jazz at Cast...

Chris Barber

 Barb Jungr

Cast is Doncaster’s new performance venue.  Opened in 2013 it is a multi-space venue with four performance spaces, its most intimate space holds 80 people and its largest space 620.  Throughout the year it presents an eclectic programme of leading artists and companies from across the UK and further afield.  In its programming it aims to get more and more people involved in enjoying the arts and cultural experiences.

Nestled in the heart of Doncaster (on Waterdale), Cast is a place for performance, participation, conversation and debate.  In the last year alone its programme has hosted work of national significance and they are committed to developing a jazz programme that brings the best to the town and showcases artists in incredible settings.  From album launches and workshops to live performances; Cast has already played host to many jazz artists including Barb Jungr, Clare Teal, Jackie Dankworth, Dennis Rollins, Roger Beaujolais and more.

As this new venue continues to grow it aims to programme more in the way of Jazz performance and establish itself as a name on the circuit for the some of the best live gigs in the region.  Only a short distance from Sheffield, Leeds and York its certainly worth a visit.

Chris Barber appears on Sat 31 Jan with his ten-piece band, featuring a sevenstrong front line, Chris plays a selection of his favourite music from his roots in New Orleans style to the early music of Duke Ellington and Sidney Bechet, before going back to "When the Saints".
