South Coast Jazz Festival 2018

What an honour it is for the South Coast Jazz Festival to have been nominated for ‘Jazz Venue of the Year’ in the Parliamentary Jazz Awards 2018. We are very proud and very grateful to the crew, artists, sponsors, volunteers, audiences and Ropetackle Arts Centre who have all contributed so much to our achievements.

After four fantastic years however we regretfully announce that there will be no South Coast Jazz Festival in January 2019. In the light of fierce competition for funding and due to individual and personal career developments, we, the directors, have decided to take some time out to review how and when the South Coast Jazz Festival will be presented in the future.

While we reflect, here’s a reminder of just some of the amazing artists that we have been delighted to present:

Bobby Wellins, Arun Ghosh, Liane Carroll, Ian Shaw, Sarah Jane Morris, Joe Stilgoe, Norma Winstone, Gareth Williams, Terry Pack’s Trees, Incognito , Alec Dankworth, Zoe Rahman, Nigel Price, Ray Gelato, Dennis Rollins, Kansas Smitty’s House Band, Gwilym Simcock, Elliot Galvin, Clark Tracey Quintet, Brotherhood Of Breath, J-Sonics, Christine Tobin, Pete Long, Alex Garnett and many, many more…
