The Cinnamon Club will celebrate its 13th birthday tomorrow night with a special party and a packed programme of live music.

Kicking off at 8pm, singer-songwriter Dave Giles will be getting things underway with his tales of Love, Life, Loss and Tea.

Powerhouse vocalist Terri Shaltiel – described as a mix of jazz, gospel, reggae, blues and soul with a “majestic” on-stage presence – will follow with her band.

And then there’s Lancashire four-piece The Lottery Winners – a band said to be on the cusp of stardom and a live favourite – fresh from their biggest tour to date, supporting Ocean Colour Scene.

Watch ‘Elizabeth’ by The Lottery Winners:

Tickets for the night are just £11.25 and can be purchased here.

The Cinnamon Club, on The Firs in Bowdon, was set up by former software entrepreneur – and jazz fan – Neil Hughes in 2003 and he continues to run it today, ably assisted by young music promoter Abi Richardson.

Nowadays it mixes dancing classes and live music nights, from jazz and pop through to blues and Americana.

The dance floor – the largest sprung dance floor in the area – regularly attracts over 100 people for the regular swing nights, while The Lounge – with its grand piano, low lights and black and white photos of jazz greats adorning the walls – is like a 1930s Speakeasy.

And it remains an ever-popular venue for wedding and other functions, the latter under the guise of The Bowdon Rooms.
