Tickets are going fast for the 10th annual Jazz, Tea and Cheesecake event next Sunday, July 19  on Morningstar Farm in French Creek.

“The atmosphere is really a magical thing,” said Morningstar’s Ray Haynes of the pastoral location set against the backdrop of Mount Arrowsmith.

“There’s no reserved seating, but there’s plenty of shade, enough for everyone if they want,” he said.

This year’s entertainment includes The Desperation Jazz Band, including local legend Bill Cave, and The Hot Mammas, including a member of the famed B.C. Arntzen jazz family who have performed there before.

The music starts at 1:30 p.m., but go early to get a good spot.

The $25 tickets are available at the gate, or in advance at the farmgate store, Mulberry Bush Books in Qualicum Beach and Parksville and Cranky Dog Music in Parksville. For more information call 250-954-3931, e-mail info@cheeseworks.ca or visit www.morningstarfarm.ca.
