Keswick Jazz and Blues Festival 2018

The 27th Keswick Jazz and Blues Festival is nearly upon us! This year, this wonderfully musical festival is taking place between 10th and 13th May in the beautiful Cumbrian town of Keswick.

The Festival is a four- day long celebration of the very best of New Orleans, Swing, Hot Club, Classic, Traditional and Mainstream Jazz and Blues in 2018! This year the festival organisers have brought together more talented musicians than ever, including Enrico Tomasso, Denise Gordon and the fabulous Keith Nichols. It is sure to be an event to remember.

Joining you at the festival will be the wonderful people from the Keswick Brewing Company! These Cumbrian brewers have been supporters of the Jazz and Blues Festival for many years, and this year they have come up with a fantastic new brew, aptly called ‘Jazz Session’. We cannot wait to try this golden ale as we relax with the notes of melodic jazz drifting by.


While you are in Keswick, it would be a great idea to explore the rest of what this town has to offer visitors! Drop in at the Pencil Museum, explore the market on a Thursday or Sunday and enjoy a couple of drinks in one of the many cosy pubs Keswick is home to.

At the end of a long day full of musical creativity, exploration and fun, Armathwaite Hall Hotel and Spa is the perfect place to retire to. Our magnificent Hall is positioned right by Lake Bassenthwaite, within 400 acres of magnificent deer park and woodland. It is also only an approximately 20-minute journey by road from Keswick and its beloved Jazz and Blues Festival! Stay with us and round-off your ideal weekend with a hint of luxury and comfort.
