Baldock Irish Festival will run over Saturday and Sunday this year due to the Bank Holiday change.
It starts with the magnificent local band Skimmington Ride and Friends in the beer garden at The Cock. It then moves on to Templars for The Gathering (see the later event).
This year’s Jazz Spectacular, in association with The Baldock Festival, will take place on Saturday 2nd May. Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
It promises to be a fantastic evening featuring the All Stars Big Band, the Little Big Band, local saxophonist Tom Plater and the Barney Taylor Jazz Ensemble. This year the students have chosen a selection of their favourite pieces which will cover a wide range of styles and composers.
Tickets cost £10.00 (£7.00 concession) and are strictly limited. Tickets will go on sale from 30 March and will only be available from KTS reception. Tickets will not be available on the door.
The KTS Parents’ Association will run a cash bar at the event offering beer, wine and soft drinks.

Baldock Town Twinning Association is once more presenting a murder mystery evening. The play has again been written by one of our members and features the fictitious Grant family (of last year) who lived through the aftermath of world war one. This year’s play is set in 1943 during the dark days of the 2nd world war and includes a 2020 reflection on the events that took place on the 6th May 1943. You will be given ration cards which will list the ingredients of this year’s supper; 1943 rural communities fared better than the towns, so expect good quality food which will be served during the intervals. If you wish to dress in 1940’s attire, please do so, it will add to the atmosphere.
The ticket price covers your entry fee, a hot supper plus, of course, dessert, a reasonably priced bar (no BYO, please) as well as the Murder Mystery entertainment and a raffle with some ‘unusual’ prizes. This event sells out quickly and we are limiting numbers this year so that everyone has a comfortable and enjoyable evening.
Come and experience a 1940’s tea whilst singing along to some traditional wartime songs, as we celebrate 75 years since the end of WWII.
A pay bar serving beer and Prosecco will be available. Bring your Union Jacks and come dressed appropriately for the period if you would like to.
A Big Breakfast in support of Christian Aid. Choose from a traditional cooked breakfast or continental pastries, accompanied by tea, coffee or fruit juices.
A Prosecco pay bar is available.
