Venues

If you have been a regular visitor to the Keswick Jazz Festival then the venues for the forthcoming celebration will already be familiar to you.

Unlike a field based festival Keswick Jazz & Blues takes place in bricks and mortar premises around the town. We have already identified some of the best locations such as The Alambra Cinema, Southey St Methodist Church, Skiddaw Hotel, the Conservative Club and the Keswick Masonic Hall.

One of the major benefits of all these locations is just that – the location. All are within easy walking distance of each other, some just yards with the greatest distance being maybe 6 or 7 minutes on foot.
