If you fancy travelling somewhere different for your jazz music then there is always the Malta Jazz Festival held in the capital city of Valletta. This event runs all week from 15th to 20th July with the only paid for acts playing on the Friday and Saturday.
How is this relevant to our area? Well Malta is very easy to get to from Bournemouth airport and the flight prices are reasonable. For details of the event and who’s playing check out the Malta Jazz Festival website.
