Margate Jazz Weekend 2018

Olby's are pleased to announce the partnership of Olby's Soul Cafe & Margate Jazz Festival to present MARGATE JAZZ WEEKEND 2018. This year we aim to continue on the path of those who have reaffirmed Margates relationship with all things Jazz particularly following on from what was created by David Mossman, (Vortex Jazz Club) in 2005. Know then as 'The Big Sky Jazz Festival'.

On Friday 21st Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd September we bring to you a collection of the finest improvisers from around the world.
