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 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 and a donation to charity (IW Mountbatten Hospice).

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.

Thank You !

Gary and JimLast year, the very first Newport Jazz Weekend was judged to be successful but was it just a "flash in the pan"?

With your help, NJW 2013 proved it wasn't. Over the weekend over a thousand tickets were sold (more accurate details available soon).

Newport Jazz Weekend is now established as an annual event on both the Isle of Wight and Jazz calendars.
(see message from event organiser Jim Thorn)

We're already getting some great feedback on facebook and twitter.

We hope to be announcing details of NJW 2014 soon

Please look back at this site in a couple of days, when we hope to be posting loads of photographs of this years event. (for the time being - here's a great one of Gary Plumley and Jim Mullin playing at the Apollo Theatre on Saturday)
