Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music 2023

With great pleasure we announce the 7th year of Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music. 

Launched 2017, the festival continues to respond to the city’s appetite for a contemporary grass roots jazz festival, presenting an innovative and diverse international line up, celebrating and pushing boundaries that challenge perceptions of jazz and improvised music.

This year we welcome new performance spaces including the Jesmond United Reformed Church and Blank Studios, alongside our regular venues Bobiks, The Globe and the Newcastle Literary and Philosophical Society.


We are also especially delighted to include three performances from the Edith Adamson Carillon at Newcastle Civic Centre. A landmark on the Newcastle Skyline the carillon is the heaviest of its kind in the world, with a total metal mass of 22 tonnes, what a treat to hear the 25 bells ringing out across the city through a specially commissioned festival piece for our three weekends. 

We continue to work with our lead partners Jazz North East, but also other key regional promoters including Jazz.Coop, GemArts and the Thursday Night Prayer Meeting.

Alongside British and International UK based artists this year we’re delighted to be bringing musicians from Italy, Switzerland, France and multiple Scandinavian regions. 

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

Our festival this year is dedicated in memory of Steve Horowitz who recently passed, a tireless supporter of the Tyneside jazz scene who will be sadly missed but never forgotten.

We hope you enjoy the show!
