Policy Statement

This event is being organised by a local committee of musicians and jazz fans.

Our aim is to promote jazz on the Isle of Wight. Members of the committee will not receive any financial reward. Inspected accounts will be made available on request.

The committee will cover the cost of the main venues and headline acts. This will be funded by sponsorship, ticket sales and other fund-raising activities.

Any subsequent profits will go towards funding future events.

We will encourage other performances during the period. However, we will not act as agents. It will be the responsibility of the performers and venues to negotiate between themselves.

Newport Jazz Weekend 2016 dates : 2 June to 5 June

After the great success of our 2015 event we are pleased to announce that we will return at the same time next year (the end of Half Term week in early June) with a slightly bigger event. We will once again feature the best of UK jazz along with a good slice of local talent from the Island, but this time also a number of international names. We are very pleased to be welcoming Janet Seidel, Australia's first lady of jazz singing, and her trio, who will perform on Friday 3 June. Also after the great success of Sunday at the Medina Theatre in 2015, we will return there with another big band - this time from the USA, as we welcome the multiple award-winning California State University (Northridge) "A" Jazz Band.
