The Water Rats Jazz Band performing at Hotel Wroxham

The amazing Water Rats Jazz Band is one of Britain’s oldest Jazz Bands. Founded in 1965, only Chris Barber, Mr Acker Bilk’s Paramount Jazzband and Kenny Ball’s Jazzmen are older.  They came for a week’s holiday to the Norfolk Broads, hired a boat and felt a little bored. What could be done? The answer was easy: lets drink some beer and play some music. The music was Jazz, traditional Jazz,  “We’ll meet again next year”, they promised to each other after that week. A long, long, long tradition had started.

As part of their 47th glorious Water Rats Tour we are very lucky to have them playing at the Hotel Wroxham on the evening of July 25th, from 7.30pm,  so why not come along to hear some great Jazz and theres no entry charge!
