Annie Whitehead is a trombone virtuoso best known for her engaging mix of African grooves, Blues, Ska and Ellingtonian expressionism. For many years her distinctive sound has added an infectious joy to a wide range of projects, exploring many different musical styles: Brotherhood of Breath, Elvis Costello, Penguin Café Orchestra, McCoy Tyner, Carla Bley, Abdullah Ibrahim and Joan Armatrading, to name but a few. With her own Quartet featuring Steve Lodder (Piano & keyboards), Jennifer Maidman (Bass) and Liam Genockey (Drums) we can look forward to an evening of irresistible enjoyment.

The Grand Hall | Scarborough Spa

The 18th Scarborough Jazz Festival has been postponed until September 2021 taking place over its usual weekend of 24-26 September 2021.

The good news is festival line-up remains unchanged barring one act, Swiss band VEIN who have touring commitments in Canada but it is hoped they will be part of a future festival. 


Due to the date change, the festival’s Earlybird weekend ticket offer has been extended until the end of July 2021 and customers only need to get in touch if they can’t make the rescheduled festival when a full refund will be given. 

Mike Gordon, The Scarborough Jazz Festival Director said: “The great news is that I have been in touch with all the performers we had booked for September 2020 and I’m delighted to say that they are all available for the rearranged dates in September 2021. I’m particularly pleased about this as I have received many enthusiastic positive comments about the programme line up.

So, COVID permitting, we can look forward to a fantastic weekend. I’ve already ordered sunshine and blue skies.


Weekend, Day & Afternoon Tickets for the rearranged festival are now on sale and can be purchased via

If you don’t already know, then read on…

The festival is uniquely set in one of the UK’s finest Elizabethan stately piles, our very own Burton Agnes Hall! Over twenty five bands provide a weekend of Jazz and Blues from our manicured lawns and inside our ornately carved Great Hall. There is civilised camping with hot showers in the adjacent park field, children’s entertainers, local ale and food, late night acts in the bar tent and open mic performances in our shops and cafe courtyard.
Could this be the most breathtaking place to spend a weekend, soaking up the UK’s hottest jazz and blues acts?

We provide music for all tastes, from those seeking an ambient accompaniment to a glass of wine in the majestic grounds; to the jazz or blues aficionado wanting to get up close to star performers. Delicious baking from our courtyard cafe will be served in the tea tent; with locally roasted coffee brewed on our Gaggia coffee machine. There is a fabulous range of locally sourced food on our food lawn; next door to our vintage ice cream van and its real dairy ice creams. Award winning Wold Top beers will be on tap, brewed just a few miles away.

There is camping for tents, caravans and motor homes in the beautiful surroundings of the adjacent Park Field, with hot showers laid on. The child in all of us is taken care of by balloon artistry and face painting, and highlights of Burton Agnes’ grounds including a woodland adventure playground, a maze, giant games, jungle garden and woodland walk with forest creatures to find.
