Upton upon Severn is the ideal setting for a weekend of jazz, fun and good company, and following the success of 2014 we will have Jazz, Swing and Dance - 60+ concerts over 4 days, in two main areas of town.  For the first time we have 2 sessions of music on Thursday evening at the Sports Ground Marquee; three larger marquees with two dance floors.  It will be the second year of Dance@Upton with Beginners' and Improvers' Dance Classes; and the seventh year of Best of Young Jazz.

Down by the Riverside: six town venues including the ever popular Conway Castle Jazz river trips and Jazz under the Bridge.  Plus our 'All Welcome' jam sessions. The Jazz Bus will be running and there will be a Big Saturday Parade; and the Church Service.

Improved camping, just a short walk to the Jazz, a bigger choice of stalls, food and drink, plus free car parking next to the Sports Ground - everything you need in one lovely place, with a guaranteed warm welcome from the town.

With a stellar line-up of bands from right across the Jazz spectrum, we are sure the 30th Upton Jazz Festival will be the most impressive yet.

To buy your tickets, either click here to book online or here to download a booking form for postal applications. You can, of course, also give us a ring on 01684 593254 to book using a credit/debit card. We would love to welcome you to Upton in June 2015.

A tribute to Clive 'Spoons' Morgan 1927-2014

Everyone at Upton Jazz wishes to pay tribute to Spoons who died recently at an ever-youthful age of 87. Spoons was a familiar figure at Upton Jazz Festival and also at the Friends of the Upton Festival monthly concerts and much loved by us all - organisers, stewards, volunteers, bands, secondliners and Upton people. Sadly he will not be at Festival 30 in June 2015. We thought it fitting that he should be featured on our web banner - he was a headliner too...!  You can see Spoons in action via this youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXyl-ZSkkJI, taken on June 26th 2010, during the Jazz Festival.
