The Venue

The Holiday Inn Hotel, Norwich North (Cromer Rd, Norwich, NR6 6JA) is the ideal venue for this wonderful festival. The home, for many years, of the now defunct Norwich Jazz Party, the hotel has hosted top jazz performers from all over the world.
The ballroom, which boasts great acoustics, a fine dance floor and stage, provides the ideal setting where you can relax and absorb the scintillating rhythms of the music. Whether you prefer to dance or listen, the ambience will create an atmosphere of sheer joy.
These unsolicited comment was sent following last year’s festival: “A really great weekend. Great music. Great location. Great food. Well done” P & J A. “Another splendid w/e…thanks a lot for organising it.” V S.
Included in the price, along with the splendid accommodation, is the sumptuous food. From the evening meal on Friday, the breakfast and evening meal on Saturday to breakfast on Sunday morning. If you have special dietary requirements, the hotel chef will be pleased to accommodate your requests.
This hotel has a wonderful pool and gym which is fully inclusive. Free Parking.
