This week-long indoor festival – part-curated by impossibly fresh faced Jamie Cullum, who also performs at the event – features the best of British and international jazz performers and is always a big highlight of the jazz calender due to its mix of esteemed scene veterans and contemporary new talent, including a few pop-leaning offerings. Some of the wide-ranging names on the bill include jazz-fusion legend Billy Cobham, acclaimed newcomer Laura Mvula and golden-voiced soul singer Gregory Porter. There are also seminars and film screenings throughout the week.
