THE WATFORD JAZZ JUNCTION MUSIC FESTIVAL 2023 TOOK PLACE 13-21 MAY.
NEXT YEAR WE'LL ROLL AGAIN, 10-19 MAY 2024!
The 2023 Watford Jazz Junction music festival celebrated the influence of the Caribbean on UK jazz with a fabulous line-up of musicians who headed to town.
Our opening night featured an infectious mix of soul, reggae and jazz with singers Omar & Zara McFarlane at the Watford Palace Theatre.
We then moved to the Pump House for 2 days with shows from Xhosa Cole, Emma Rawicz, Cleveland Watkiss, and a live broadcast from Jazz FM.
Our final day saw a free-to-attend celebration of music across 5 pub venues as part of our festival within a festival: Jazz Steps Around Oxhey Village.
Our festival rounded off with another free performance from global steel-pan star Leon Foster Thomas who played with his band on Watford Heath on Sunday 21 May at 5pm.
There was also a Jazz Workshop for Young Ones and a special Prosecco Jazz Brunch hosted by Ruth Fisher.
It was all awesome... :-)
