ENJOY a Friday night out combining jazz and curry.

The jazz supper will be held at Uplyme Village Hall on Friday, September 6 in aid of local cancer charity, Axminster and Lyme Cancer Support.

According to Jazz Jurassica, which has helped co-ordinate the event, the evening brings together 'great jazz and great food in aid of a great cause for a really great Friday night out'.

The evening will feature jazz festival favourites, La Vie en Rose who play the kind of gypsy jazz and hot swing organisers say will get toes tapping and pulses racing.

“With their hot fiddles and slaptastic bass, La Vie en Rose never fail to deliver a truly pulsating, uplifting performance. They’re a classy act and enormous fun”’ says Julie Sheppard of Jazz Jurassica.

Khushi Kitchen, based at Kilmington, is providing a curry supper based on authentic Indian recipes using locally sourced ingredients. This locally-based business has a well-deserved reputation for high quality and delicious home made food.

Lyme Regis Brewery will be running the bar. The Brewery is making a name for itself in the Lyme Regis area for its innovative craft beers and its revitalising presence at Town Mill with its welcoming Tap Room and programme of events.

For Julie Sheppard this event has special significance. “I lost both my parents to cancer and several close friends. So, whether you’re affected by cancer personally or through friends and family we want you to know that you’re not alone and there’s support available locally. This event’s organised by local people for the benefit of locals”.

The founder of Axminster and Lyme Cancer Support, Mary Kahn says “We’ve been running for nearly a year and have been overwhelmed by the support from the local community. The funds we raise from the evening will go towards offering local people local support so they don’t have to travel far to get the help they need – whether that’s advice, therapies, practical help or just someone to talk to. We’re able to support anyone affected with any cancer. We hope people will come and support the evening.”
