Jazz on the Quay – Bembridge Harbour – 18th June

Wight Locations, Jazz on the Quay

There has been a reawakening…

Throughout the late 80’s and 90’s, Jazz on the Quay was an annual event held at Bembridge Harbour, and the organisers are thrilled to be able to bring the event back to life this coming June.

This musical extravaganza is being held in support of Ryde Inshore Rescue Independent Lifeboat, which is a very worthy cause and vital for the local community.


Our round up of Island music festivals

Acoustic Isle
24 Feb - 6 March
Hundreds of local musicians take to pubs, bars and restaurants to perform over this 12 day music festival. Simply book a table in a participating venue and enjoy your meal to your chosen musical genre!

Acoustic Isle

Roll back the years to the 1960’s and nobody would be surprised to hear that the Isle of Wight was a hot-bed for new and emerging musical talent. 1969 saw Bob Dylan plugging in his acoustic guitar and playing the Isle of Wight Festival rather than Woodstock. 120,000 people flocked to see him, opening the floodgates for over 600,000 fans the following year eager to lay eyes on the legendary Hendrix, The Doors and The Who.

The Isle of Wight Walking Festival will be hosting a variety of walks this autumn and takes place between 23 and 26 October 2015.

Isle of Arts Festival

The Island boasts a wonderful Arts community with regular Open Studios and Literary Festivals held throughout the year. The jewel in the crown of this creative hub is undoubtedly the Isle of Arts Festival which this year takes place 1 - 4 May in Ventor.
