Jubilee Jazz Festival - Music to make Horace Walpole Spin?

Strawberry Hill House
He loved to entertain. He loved the quirky. He loved the arts and left us a little Gothic house at Strawberry Hill, whose very existence pretty much sums him up on its own. He used this lovely little treasure to indulge and share what he loved with his friends. With entertainment at the heart and core of Strawberry Hill House, we like to wonder what Horace Walpole would have thought of its use as the stage for the upcoming Jazz Festival across 3rd-4th June 2012
