Down With Jazz, the festival that reels back the decades to the anti-jazz movement of the 30’s, is back for a fourth edition this June Bank Holiday weekend.


Who knows what class of devilment the capitol’s citizens will get up if the sun comes out, with hip swivelling music and decadent improvising from the country’s finest jazz musicians?


Contemporary and inclusive, Down With Jazz is a big tent that welcomes musicians and music lovers of all persuasions, from funk and electronica, to chamber pop and free improv, with a line up that reflects our diversity today. Line-up for the 2015 festival soon to be announced!
