Live Music, Art, Film and Workshops

Thank you for another great weekend of jazz!

Save the Date!

26th–28th June 2020

The next festival will be 26th – 28th June 2020 – a make note in your diary.

The fourth Ipswich Jazz Festival 2019 was the best yet. Thank you everyone who organised, volunteered, sponsored, played at or attended an event.

Over 1,000 people came to our events and we had live music for all ages and we showcased a wide range of jazz – from early New Orleans to the most contemporary styles and gigs where people can enjoy a good dance.

A total of 68 musicians performed at our events and in keeping with our commitment to make jazz accessible to all, we had some tickets at just £1 for people on low incomes, free events around Ipswich and a range of workshops for budding musicians, a lecture, film art shows. We hope to not only repeat our success, but make the festival bigger next year. We are already booking some exciting acts.
