Get your jazz hands out for the Scarborough Jazz Festival

Scarborough, North Yorkshire

Each September the annual Scarborough Jazz Festival on Yorkshire’s north coast provides the ideal tonic for music lovers to wash away those summer blues.

Always presenting a programme packed with variety and covering a range of different jazz genres, it’s no surprise that the Scarborough Jazz Festival boasts record audience numbers year on year.
Recently rated as one of the top five UK Jazz Festivals by the Guardian Festival Guide, visit the charming seaside town of Scarborough and enjoy an eclectic programme of music in the grand Victorian surroundings of Scarborough Spa.

Taking place across three days, the event always tries to "put on a fresh and balanced programme and unashamedly relies on the plethora of outstanding British musicians”.
The festival is set in one of the most beautiful bays in the world, and provides jazz in the form of rousing big bands, along with modern sounds from up-and-coming acts. 

The Scarborough Jazz Festival runs from the 22 to 24 September.
