Our 2022 chosen charity

Southend Jazz Festival is a not-for-profit organisation, committed to supporting and celebrating jazz, in all it's forms, in the City of Southend-on-Sea. We work with other local promoters, venues and musicians, to ensure the festival represents the whole Southend-on-sea jazz scene.

We want to bring new and exciting musicians to the established jazz audience, whilst working hard, through 
education, workshops and other engagement events, to bring a whole new audience to jazz.

We strive to make the festival as inclusive and accessible as possible, constantly looking to push new boundaries to ensure we produce a true community event that everyone can be proud of.

We're working with Creative Estuary and Southend City Council to make the Southend Jazz Festival as inclusive and accessible as possible. Several of our events this year offer heavily discounted tickets, thanks to public funding, and we are also able to offer a limited number of free tickets to those who may otherwise feel excluded from the festival.

If you are under 25, over 70, or in receipt of Universal Credit, you can email us, in confidence, to see which events offer free tickets for you -
