    Solihull town centre

    Solihull Jazz Festival 2023

    We’re back, bigger and better than ever, with something for everyone at this landmark music festival!

    Need to know

    Friday is ‘Tribute Night’ with amazing tributes to Little Mix and Queen getting Solihull in the party mood!

    The Jazz Festival then begins with a full line up on the main stage in Mell Square on Saturday with free live music also in 20 venues throughout the town centre.

    You do not need to book to view any of the performances and seating is allocated on a first come, first served basis. You may be able to book tables inside venues who have a band – please contact the venue directly to discuss.

    Please note that there are public toilets available in Mell Square (at the entrance to Mell Square Car Park) and we will also have dedicated portable toilets for Festival goers. These will be closed shortly after the last band has finished playing on the Mell Square Main Stage. Touchwood also have public toilets.

    We would kindly ask that you do not use toilets/facilities inside local cafes or restaurants if you do not intend to purchase anything from the venue. Thank you.
