Click your fingers to the sounds of Bristol's Jazz and Blues Festival


Bristol plays host to some of the world’s most exciting and innovative jazz and blues artists for the Bristol International Jazz and Blues Festival.

Jazz jackets on! Bristol is fast becoming the New Orleans of the UK with a thriving and thumping jazz scene across the city. This all culminates in an annual festival held at Colston Hall, to celebrate all that is wonderful about this style of music.

Over 40 concerts, workshops and jam sessions, some of which are free, make up its jam-packed programme, making it a must-see amongst Bristol’s festivals in March. So if you're looking for cultural city breaks, look no further. 

2019's lineup features performances from international superstars including Richard Galliano, Pee Wee Ellis and Lucky Peterson. Tickets to each event are available now through the Jazz and Blues Festival site.
