With a career which began in the late 1950s, saxophonist Peter has remained at the forefront of his craft, having won numerous awards and accolades on his instrument.

Joining him at the club which meets at Campus West, Welwyn Garden City, will be Steve Melling, piano, Geoff Gascoyne, bass, and Mark Fletcher, drums.

Tickets are £5 for students and under-21s; £11 in advance from www.hawthornetheatre.co.uk/whatsonstage.html or £13 at the door.
