Upton Day of Jazz

2nd October 2021

A Day of Jazz in Upton : Saturday 2nd October 2021

After two Jazz Festival cancellations, we now have the chance to do something new and different. Musicians want to play, we believe audiences want to listen (safely of course), businesses in town want to see some people about and ideally spending. We don’t want to wait for June 2022 though planning for the Jazz Festival – Last Weekend in June 2022 is in hand.

So….Upton’s Day of Jazz will take place on Saturday 2nd October 2021.

We will have Jazz playing in several venues in and around town, some with outside space for those who remain cautious. We have invited young talented ‘Best of Young Jazzers’ to come and show off their talent. We will have a Jazz Fringe event at the Swan Hotel.

The event will run from 11.30am through until 11.00pm. Venues will include Bar 7, Mojitos, the Boathouse, the Swan Hotel and the Kings Head. Other venues and local traders are welcome to pitch in. A full list of bands will be published as soon as we can.

Oh…and it’s all FREE to enter, with some of the venues having open air spaces. It’s a thank you to our loyal jazz fans and to the fantastic people of Upton who have supported each other through the challenges of covid.

We would appreciate donations to secure the future of the Jazz. Collections on the day will benefit local charities. Offers of help on the day are welcome too…just email the jazz via the website www.uptonjazz.co.uk

This event is supported by Malvern Hills District Council. It is part funded by the European Regional Development ‘Welcome Back’ Fund; supported by HM Govt; by Upton Town Council, and by County Councillor Martin Allen. The Upton Jazz Fringe is supported by Balens (specialist insurers) of Malvern; the Upton Co-op Community Fund; and our Fringe charity friends the Nathan Tomkins Trust.
