The DixieMix Dixieland Jazz Band, one of the UK’s most engaging and successful jazz ensembles, with resounding success opened the 21st season of the relaunched concerts in Trunch.  DixieMix packed the church, with over 140 people in attendance, raising over £600 (after performer & other expenses) towards conservation & restoration of the Church building.  Our thanks to everyone who attended!
