The Lowestoft Jazz Festival is set to make a comeback in 2024.

The event, now run yearly by Pakefield's Seagull Theatre, will once again fill Lowestoft with acclaimed jazz artists from around the world thanks to funding from the Scop Arts Trust, which will enable some of the shows to be free.

Local performers, Pangaea, will start the festival on Thursday, September 12 at 8pm at the Hotel Hatfield, also recognised as the home of Milestones Jazz club.

Alto-saxophonist, Soweto Kinch, a notable performer in the British jazz scene and winner of multiple awards, is set to thrill the audience on Friday, September 13 at 8pm at the Seagull Theatre.

A performance at East Point Pavilion on Saturday, September 14 will offer jazz beginners a free taste of the genre, with accomplished UK musician Art Themen and his trio on stage from 2.30pm.

The evening concert at the Seagull Theatre will feature the talented Barb Jungr, an award-winning singer-songwriter; she will perform at 8pm.

The festival will conclude on Sunday, September 15, starting with another free performance at 2.30pm at Hotel Hatfield by saxophonist Trish Clowes and her trio, My Iris.

The Eddie Seale Big Band will host the final act at the Seagull Theatre at 7.30pm.
