Jazz returns to Brecon in Wales

Every year the historic market town of Brecon in Mid Wales stages one of Britain's most stimulating jazz festivals. Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2008, HSBC Brecon Jazz promises an exciting programme this year, with more than 80 events and free street entertainment over the three days 810 August.

The full programme will be announced soon, but there are already rumours that Van Morrison will be joining the line-up of jazz greats, blues legends and emerging young Welsh and British talent. Last year's stars included Mose Allison, Ray Gelato, Humphrey Lyttleton, Andy Sheppard, the Mingus Dynasty Band and Jools Holland with his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra.
