Festival Description

The prestigious Scarborough Jazz Festival returns to the Spa Complex for another exciting, diverse and fun weekend line-up. In its first three years it has enjoyed increasing national acclaim. Audiences and performers alike have acknowledged the consistently high quality of artists and find the variety and range of the program refreshing, accessible, innovative—and fun.

The physical setting gives the festival an added appeal. It is staged in the Grand Hall of the impressive Victorian Spa Complex, which looks out across the sands and sea towards imposing cliffs and Scarborough Castle. SJF always tries to put on a fresh and balanced program and unashamedly relies heavily on the plethora of outstanding British musicians—the legendary Georgie Fame is one of the highlights of this year’s Scarborough Jazz Festival. As before it will provide high quality

Apart from the immediate attractions of the town and picturesque surroundings, visitors can expect a variety of fringe events which will lead up to the main festival. This year there will be a greater range of food and drink, including real ale, to suit all tastes and pockets.
