Next Year's Festival: 21st - 24th June 2018


A four-day celebration of the Jazz, Swing and Blues music of the 1920s, 30s and 40s; music which grew out of the streets and clubs of New Orleans, New York, Chicago and Kansas City.

A strong line-up: Gypsy Jazz from Paris and beyond, more than a little Jive and Boogie Woogie, all this mixed with a dash of the Modern and even a slice of Ska.

From 21st to 24th June 2018 we will be Back in Town with iconic and intimate venues; our 10th year of Best of Young Jazz shows off the exceptional talents of young players from across the Midlands region, a vintage themed Jazz Parade, the ever-popular, packed, Jazz Church Service, fringe venues with a performance and busking stage Down by the Riverside, camping and parking on Fish Meadow, riverside stalls, food and drink, all in Upton upon Severn - voted a 'Best Place to Live' by the Sunday Times in 2017.
