We are absolutely thrilled by the overwhelming and positive responses that we have received following this year’s 2022 Sidmouth International Jazz and Blues Festival which took place in the beautiful coastal town of Sidmouth, East Devon between Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June.

We thank Greg Towning for all of the superb photographs taken throughout the festival, please access our gallery on the links below.

We are delighted to confirm that the 2023 festival will take place from 25 to 29 May which will encompass the end of May bank holiday weekend.

Being our first year as an organisation we will be learning from this year’s festival and implementing the learning and knowledge that we experienced to ensure that we improve aspects as we progress with our planning for next year’s festival.

Launching any new cultural event especially in the current climate requires dedication, passion, and creativity and as a small festival team we have these qualities in abundance however, without the immensely appreciated support and help from many areas it would have not been possible to fulfil our exciting new festival without the support and help from the following organisations and partners which we thank enormously.

Sidmouth Town Council ,  Visit Sidmouth ,  Sidmouth Design ,  Molyneux Financial Planning ,  Charles Stanley Wealth Managers ,  Sweetcombe Cottage Holidays ,  William Young Pianos ,  WBW Solicitors , The Royal Glen Hotel , Jurassic Fibre , Bradleys Estate Agents , South Western Railway, Potburys of Sidmouth , Aspect Windows , The National Lottery Community Fund , Northcott Brothers Sidmouth , Sidmouth Hotels & Inn  (Dukes Inn, The Elizabeth Hotel, The Kingswood Hotel & Self Cater Sidmouth), Branscombe Brewery , Dalwood Vineyard , The Belmont Hotel , The Victoria Hotel and Kennaway House .

Please keep updated with news of our exciting plans for the 2023 festival taking place in late May next year by signing up to our mailing list and by following us on social media via Facebook and Instagram.
