The York Festival of Ideas runs this year from 9th-21st June with a theme of Secrets & Discoveries. This varied festival hosts performance, discussions and exhibitions which broadly interpret the main theme. One such event may interest jazz listeners as Richard Havers discusses 75 years of Blue Note on June 16th.

Havers will use the book as the basis for his talk which will also feature musical examples.
The event takes place on Tuesday 16th June from 6.30pm until 7.30pm and is free to attend, although sign-up is required. You can reserve your place on the Festival of Ideas website.
