Congratulations to Ian Bowden Festival Director (the energy behind the festival) for assembling such a creative team with great contacts and organisational skills. Of course the biggest thanks go to the many wonderful acts who crammed every venue to capacity.

On Saturday the 27th Sarah Jane Morris, Italian guitarist Antonio Forcione, and the incredible, award winning singer Liane Carroll join forces in St Mary’s Church.

Rye Jazz Festival in the last few years has cemented itself on the musical calendar as a must-see event. Spread over four days and five nights over the August bank holiday weekend, the festival features some of the finest musicians from the genres of jazz, blues, R&B, soul, funk, gospel and world music. At Rye Lodge Hotel we even get involved having had a number of artists playing in our courtyard whilst customers enjoy a glass of something chilled in the warm summer air.

Special thanks to the People of Rye Bay and Rye Town Hall who are always a delight and had to contend with thousands of additional visitors over the bank holidays.

Christmas 2017 is already looking like an amazing celebration and of course Rye is magical at all times of years and especially so at Christmas. This year the “Christmas In Rye” festival peaks on the 12th of December and will  run throughout December. Rye are also collaborating with their friends at Tenterden to ensure the Children have the best possible memories.
