mjf 2020 venues announced!

It’s official – mjf2020 is almost here!

The 25th Manchester Jazz Festival will take place from 21 – 25 May, and it’s set to be bigger and better than ever before.

We’ve announced the majority of the venues where you can catch this year’s special anniversary event.

Back by popular demand is The Whiskey Jar, where NQ Jazz will be running more gigs featuring the very best from the UK and International Jazz scene.

We’re excited to make a return to the iconic Band on the Wall for a weekender of big names and emerging artists, and free concerts.

Also returning as mjf venues are the RNCM for our popular series of larger concerts, and St Ann’s Church where audiences can catch more wonderful creations and one-off performances.

As always, Matt and Phreds are a staple of this year’s festival and they’ve packed more gigs in than ever before across the Bank Holiday Weekend.

We’ve also teamed up with HOME to bring you a series of jazz-themed films in the run up to the festival.

New to this year’s festival is The Stoller Hall, where we’ll be offering you the chance to see a big name in their state of the art building.
