Competition: Festival of music and sport with Jools Holland

JOOLS Holland and a host of top talent will perform at a festival in Bath held to coincide with the Olympics - and you could win tickets.

The Sulis Sound Track Festival will see television music maestro Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra perform with special guests Marc Almond, Vintage Trouble, The Skints and the Matt Schofield Trio at Bath Racecourse later this month.

Inspired by the London 2012 Olympic Games, the festival will also invite people of all ages to take part in a range of sport.

Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra recently sold out the Royal Albert Hall in London and play to more than 200,000 people a year.

Classic rock band Vintage Trouble are arguably one of the hottest live bands in the world, while The Skints are an up-and-coming ska and reggae band and the Matt Schofield Trio specialise in the blues.
