Winchester Jazz Festival

Winchester Jazz Festival 2017 will take place throughout the city from 21-24th September. Audiences can expect four days or performances by major Jazz and Swing acts from across the UK, as well as showcasing some of our best local musicians.


Winchester Jazz Festival 2018 will take place from 20th-23rd September in venues across the city centre. We have an amazing array of acts performing throughout Winchester; audiences will enjoy four days of top quality entertainment from the jazz world. By bringing the jazz festival to this beautiful and historic city we create a platform to nurture local talent, expose a wider local audience to world-class jazz music and show the rest of the UK what Winchester has to offer as a destination for the arts. We are working in partnership with the city’s key arts venues as well as alongside our valued independent pubs, bars and cafés in order to offer a diverse program of ticketed and free events, balancing maximum engagement with high quality performances.
