It’s week two of the splendid Garden Season, being held as usual in the Rectory Garden at Wavendon.

The David Gordon Trio will step up on Saturday morning, from 11.30am.

“...he is one of this country’s finest jazz pianists and an amazing composer, so the jazz crowd needs to come and support him,” Jacqui Dankworth – daughter of Sir John and Dame Cleo, and an established singer in her own right, says.

“I have worked a lot with him, and I remember dad hearing him and being incredibly bowled over,” she remembers.

You won’t get a better endorsement than that!

In the afternoon, the Tom Green Septet take over, and this collective have been given the Dankworth seal of approval too – in the form of the 2013 Dankworth Prize for Jazz Composition.

Trombonist Tom will lead the band, which comprises some of the most talented young musicians plucked from the London jazz scene.

Tickets for shows are £12 each, or you can take a combined ticket for both events and enjoy a discounted ticket price of £20.

On Sunday, step back in time with a blend of 1930s, 40s and 50s fashion, music and style in the company of Harry & Edna, below.

It’s all about red lippy, set curls and braces, we are reliably informed, so get your togs on, and go enjoy – pack a picnic and make a real afternon of it.

Live music, traditional games, hair styling and gramophones are the order of the day.

How about a nice cup of tea?

Head to the vintage tea room and you’ll get your desired.

Tickets are £12 for adults £6 for children (three to 13 years old) and free for infants.

Forget the rations for a day, and book now on MK 280800.
