ItineraryBelfast - Mystery Destination & return
Get out the glad rags, dust off the straw boater - it's Jazz time! Join our restored 1960s train at Belfast Central, hauled by a vintage steam locomotive. Relax as we leave the city behind and enjoy the sounds of New Orleans jazz when we call at stations which could be anywhere on the Northern Ireland railway network.
The music this year is again provided by the Bourbon Swing Jazz Band, one of Northern Ireland's best Dixieland bands. The band stays faithful to the traditional Delta, drawing upon a substantial repertoire of tunes from the early 20th century with influences including King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong. Most of the band has played at international jazz events.
"And - dare I say it - possibly the best, most fun night out of the summer?"
