Jazzin' the Park 2022: Everything you need to know about the free music event coming to Preston next Saturday

The Preston Jazz and Improvisation Festival is currently underway, and anticipation is growing for its finale next Saturday, an outdoor concert called Jazzin' the Park 2022.

After a three year hiatus due to the pandemic, Jazzin’ the Park will return to Winckley Square in Preston city centre on Saturday May 28.

Running between 1-7pm, organisers say the event is crammed with so much world class music, it is a festival in itself.

Jazz and Improvisation Festival Director Tony Rigg said: “Jazzin’the Park will be a celebration of music and community in a beautiful park at the heart of Preston. It is the perfect opportunity for people to bring picnics and relax in an open outdoor space whilst listening to amazing live music.”

Here is everything you need to know about the event...

How much is it?

The event is free and no tickets or sign-ups are required.

Who is running the event?

Jazzin' the Park is run by Jazzin' the Park Productions, a collective of DJ's specialising in community cohesion events through music, “hence it’s free price tag”, they say.

The non-profit organisation added: "The event holds something for everyone, regardless of their preference, fusing Hip-Hop, Soul, Drum & Bass, Funk and House music with Jazz, alongside straight up Jazz."

It will be co-hosted by Friends of Winckley Square Gardens.
