Back in town from Wednesday 1 to Monday 6 May 2024, Cheltenham Jazz Festival promises five unmissable days of live music from pop superstars to jazz legends.

Cheltenham Jazz Festival is bringing some of the world's most talented jazz musicians and exciting jazz-influenced artists to the Regency town when it returns from Wednesday 1 to Monday 6 May 2024.

With its vibrant festival village taking over Imperial Gardens for a five-day celebration of all things jazz, visitors can see the biggest names like Sophie Ellis Bextor, Jack Savoretti, Robert Plant, UB40, Morcheeba and Snarky Puppy performing under the famous Big Top; exciting up-and-comers at the Jazz Arena; and a whole host of party bands, jazz-inspired cover acts and emerging local artists on the Free Stage — with many artists handpicked by long-standing artistic curator, Gregory Porter. 

Families have plenty to enjoy, too, with children's entertainment in the Discovery Space. 

There are also a variety of concerts taking place at venues including Cheltenham Town Hall, Parabola Arts Centre, Hotel du Vin and Dunkertons Cider as well as the free '...around town' programme taking live music and pop-up events to venues across the town centre. 

Tickets to Cheltenham Jazz Festival are on general sale from Wednesday 6 March 2024.
