Wood Street Jazz Festival 2023

Sunday 16th July 2023

Guildford Jazz and Challengers are delighted to announce that the Wood Street Jazz Festival is back for another year in 2023! On Sunday 16th July we will be welcoming you to an afternoon of world-class Jazz on the Wood Street Village Green.

Music features leading UK Jazz artists, including “1960’s Soul Jazz- The music of Horace Silver and the Adderley Brothers” with the Peter Long and Ryan Quigley Quintet, some jazz funk and soul from “Redtenbacher’s Funkestra featuring Jana Varga”, and of course the Somethin’ Else Big Band to open the afternoon on the main stage, plus support acts featuring up and coming local talented jazz musicians.  

If you fancy a day out with amazing live music, please come and join us from 12.30pm-5.30pm.  

Please bring garden chairs, gazebos, rugs, umbrellas, your favourite tipple and a picnic or book an Indian curry from the Shahin’s stall on site… just don’t miss this great event!

Thanks to the generosity of the Shahin Restaurant in Guildford, you can pre-order food again this year! You can choose from chicken tikka masala or vegetable tikka masala, and both will be served with:

  • Sag bhaji
  • Onion bhaji
  • Pilau rice
  • Naan bread & pickles

Every penny raised from the day goes directly to Challengers, helping us continue to break down the barriers to play for local disabled children and their families. Thank you very much for your continued support, we look forward to you joining us for an afternoon of Jazz on the green.
