You could be in for a musical treat if you're walking through Guildford this week.

The Guildford Jazz Festival kicks off this evening, with a host of free performances alongside some ticketed events.

It lasts through until Sunday.

Curator Winston Rollins said: "As a music form Jazz encompasses so many great genres, from swing to traditional, from gospel to funk, and in this way it caters for so many tastes.

"It is this diversity that we will bring to the festival, set in a town that already has a thriving entertainment base.

"My vision is to create a performance platform for both seasoned international acts as well emerging new talent.

"This combined with a series of free musical work shops for kids and high-street events, will truly engage with the community as a whole and establish Guildford Jazz Festival as the UK's definitive jazz event."

Events are being held across Guildford, with free performances at The Village, The Harbour Hotel and The Keep.

Ticketed performances are being held at G Live, Holy Trinity Church and Casino Nightclub.
