Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music 2021

 


(
Press release)

Thursday 30th September - Sunday 3rd October
(Exhibition Preview and Warm Up: Saturday 25th September)

A multicultural mélange celebrating the rich tapestry of improvised music from the UK Jazz scene. 

In 1995 the original Newcastle Jazz Festival closed it’s doors, leaving a void in the city, until Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music was launched for the first edition in 2017.

Whilst also celebrating the 100th anniversary year of the first ever jazz recordings, Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music responded to the cities need for a grass roots contemporary jazz festival, and the development of strong cohesive creative partnerships between key regional promoters including Jazz North East, Jazz Coop at The Globe, The Literary and Philosophical Society, Newcastle Arts Centre, Gosforth Civic Theatre and GemArts.

After temporary hiatus in 2020 (in which the festival launched the New Jazz and Improvised Music Recordings project) we’re back and once again presenting a stellar line-up of events.

With the uncertainties of Covid and Brexit still looming, to give us the best chance of going ahead this edition will focus on UK based artists. Tickets are initially selling at socially distanced capacities, with further to be released early September should science guide us. 

Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music gratefully acknowledges Arts Council England, associated partners and funders for their support.
