Picnic in the park: the best way to close Jumpers and Jazz

WHAT better way to close out the Jumpers and Jazz Festival than with a comfy lawn chair, a glass of wine and little bit of jazz.

The Ergon Energy Picnic in the Park is the climax of the festival and is sure to leaving punters anticipating next year's event.

Once again the Warwick Potters have organised a market extravanganza with over 200 stalls to browse through.

These stalls will include art, craft, photography, jewellery, woodwork, organic honey, children's clothes, adults' clothes, collectibles, books, and much, much more.

This year the music will be centred around the purpose-built youth space stage and a licensed area will showcase some of the region's wines and beers.

Jumpers and Jazz organising guru Karina Devine said she was really looking forward to a day of relaxation and music.

"I have my seat, my hat and umbrella all ready to go and hopefully the German Sausage van man will be there again this year. I love those things," she said.

"The weather will be perfect.

"It will start out a little frosty but we're expecting a beautiful sunny winter's day."

On the music front, eager fans can grab a seat on the lawn and listen to a day of some of the best music the festival has to offer.
