Swanage Jazz Festival 8th to 10th July

Written by Nadine Evans on

The Swanage Jazz Festival is a well-established and very popular event for lovers of Traditional and Modern Jazz.

Friday sees the Steam Train Jazz Dance leave Swanage Station for a mix of amazing music and steam travel nostalgia. We reckon you would be hard pressed to find a combination like this anywhere else in the country!

On Saturday 9th July the Parade takes place along the seafront. A great spectacle of decorated umbrellas and quirky Jazz musicians!

Sunday sees Jazz united with gospel music. Words cannot describe that particular event!

Each day over the weekend the 2 marquees provide a relaxed and intimate venue for traditional and modern Jazz and there are free venues across the town where you can enjoy music, food and sunshine!

This is one of the big events in Swanage and we still have availability in some of our properties for one or more days over this weekend. Waters Edge Balcony Apartment is located, as the name suggests, right by the water. It is a beautiful apartment giving incredible views across the bay. Little Hyde Cottage is a cosy cottage a short walk from the seafront and all the action of the Festival.  Flat 8 Summer Lodge is a stunning apartment, close to one of the main free venues over the weekend.

Come and join in the Jazz Festival!
