You’ve spent your weekend basking in the sunlight, drinking and listening to one of the best line-ups on offer in the history of Moseley Jazz festival, but you’re not quite ready to call it a night. We heard your pleas. The unofficial after-party will be held at The Prince, Moseley from 10:00pm ‘til late for all those still standing.
