New Derbyshire venue is bringing jazz to the village

A new Derbyshire restaurant and music venue is in the works, and Exposed readers are invited to the soft launch.

Nestled in the rolling hills of Derbyshire, a new business venture is being forged by Barlow Woodseats Hall owner Nick Todd and award-winning singer, producer and entrepreneur Aaron Casserly Stewart. The two men are overseeing a restoration project which will see a new intimate 80-person capacity restaurant and live music venue, subject to approval from the local council.

As a trial run, the Hall will be open on the evening of Saturday 14 September 2019 for a soft launch including a three course dinner and a performance from Aaron himself, backed up by Sheffield pianist Simon Strafford. An evening of unique modern musical styles and jazz in such a historical setting will be the first of its kind at The Hall, which was once owned by the Bess of Hardwick.

Aaron said: “The building itself, the Hall, has amazing acoustics. The space does not need to be mic’d heavily and the sound in there is really incredible.”
