Jazznight events at Rye Intl Jazz & Blues Festival

Jazznights proudly present a number of exceptional and intimate live music events in the Tudor Room at the world famous Mermaid Inn and the Rye Cricket Club Pavilion as part of this year’s exciting 2018 festival programme. There is a fully licensed bar at both venues. For those events at the Mermaid Inn a choice of bar snacks will be available throughout the day and a meal when booking an all-inclusive supper and ticket combination. We strongly advise booking in advance at these cosy venues as the first 20 bookings will be allocated priority seating at tables close to the performers. Tickets may also be purchased on the day subject to availability.
