2022 Program

Due to Covid-19, we've had to postpone the Jazz Festival for 2020, 2021, and 2022. We are planning the 2023 program and will announce it very soon.

As it will be our 20th year we are hoping for a special day, `keeping jazz alive`.

We couldn't do it without our amazing supporters!

Our generous supporters help keep us running the festival and we'd like to take this opportunity in thanking each of them for their support.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I bring?

It's going to be a fun day of live jazz from a variety of musicians and bands, so you may want to bring a camp chair or a picnic rug to sit on. Some cover is provided but you're also welcome to bring your own and set up in the park. We ask that you do not bring any glass bottles to the festival.

What if it's raining?

If it is raining on the day of the festival then we will reschedule to another week and we will announce the new date in due course.
