Each year at Upton upon Severn there is an international jazz festival. This has been running for over 30 years and each year develops and evolves and always includes a jazz parade in the Saturday of the event. A New Orleans style event in Upton upon Severn!
The festival offers a blend of jazz styles throughout the ages, attracting all audiences with a mix of mainstream and swing with traditional jazz and Dixieland style included too.
It is an important part of the community and as the local school we are always there in support. The children enjoy the atmosphere and to experience the parade with the amazing jazz music is an inspiring experience.
For the last two years the jazz festival has run a competition for the child that designs the best umbrella. This year two prizes were given and they were awarded to two of our children in year 5, Ellie Fielding and Louis Windows. They both won vouchers for a special day out.
More information about the festival can be found on the link below where details of next year’s event will be posted as soon as they are available.
As a school we love supporting Upton Jazz and we look forward to seeing you there in 2019!
