Preview: Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music - Sept. 29 - Oct. 2

(Press release) 

In 1995 the original Newcastle Jazz Festival closed its doors, leaving a void in the city, until Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music was launched for the first edition in 2017. Responding to the cities need for a contemporary grass roots jazz festival, the programme proudly presents an innovative and diverse international line up, celebrating and pushing boundaries that challenge perceptions of jazz and improvisation.

This year we’re delighted to expand on our regular town centre activities and incorporate three nights of music in the Northern suburb of Jesmond. Popularly interpreted as “Jesus Mound” we fittingly begin our first weekend programme at the exquisite St. George’s Church, followed by two nights at one of the city’s newest and hippest venues, Bobiks at The Punch Bowl. 

The following weekend we return to our spiritual base of the prestigious Literary and Philosophical Society, with a Sunday afternoon family welcoming show at the award winning Globe. 

As ever we work with our lead partners Jazz North East, but also other key regional promoters including Jazz.Coop, GemArts, F54 and the Northern Jazz Promoters Network.

Alongside UK and Stateside based artists, we’re delighted to be bringing musicians from Belgium, and also Copenhagen with support from Jazz Danmark. 

Concerts, Live Streams, Recordings, Pre-Concert Talks, Workshops, Network Meet Ups 

Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music gratefully acknowledges Arts Council England, associated partners and funders for their support - Wesley Stephenson (Festival Producer).
