Laid back, chilled, funky, soulful, upbeat, alternative…

We’re getting all funky in June as the Jazz by the Sea Festival returns to Bournemouth and Poole from Sunday 24th to Saturday 7th July, with events taking place at various Urban Guild venues during the week. On Sunday 1st, from 4pm we’ll have ‘scared of jazz quartet’ performing at Urban Reef, so you can enjoy an afternoon of jazz/funk sounds overlooking the sea. Smooth.

The festival continues on Wednesday 4th July at Jenkins & Sons for ‘Steak & jazz’ night. We’ll have ‘Zoe Schwarz’  performing from 7pm. Grab a table in the bar with a local ale or settle in for a Josper BBQ cooked steak.

on Thursday 28th, from 7pm we’ll have ‘Ian Ellis and friends’ at urban beach hotel, and our last event is also at Urban Beach Hotel, on Thursday 5th July with ‘Richie Quain does jazz playing modern jazz inspired tunes from 7pm.

There is a full calendar of Jazz all week across the area, check out the official Jazz by the Sea festival website.
