All About the new Jazz Festival

What’s all the fuss about  


Sept 10th, 2022

For those that love Music, Contemporary and Traditional Jazz, Swing, Tango, and other kinds of music played with style and verve. The festival aims to bring musical influence from around the world together and bring the best of the jazz scene in Bristol and the Southwest to an idyllic setting on the gorgeous Somerset organic farm that is the Radford Mill Project. Expect skilled musician, quality songs, exciting music, beautiful surroundings and scrumptious food and drink.

The line up for 2022 includes

A contemporary chamber quartet, jazz/world/classical music fusions, Jazz Standards and Swing, Ethiopian jazz, Upbeat 1920s jazz from the roaring 20s, a Tango band, a Brazilian Jazz quartet and a world/cinematic/prog/jazz group improvisation session led by the Art Council funded composer Daniel Inzani.

The Site is a beautifully restored Mill and its Gardens in Somerset – near to Bath and Bristol. Radford Mill Farm has been an organic farm since the seventies and the food served at the festival is grown, prepared, cook and served in the on-site Farm Kitchens. Expect fresh and healthy meals plus the occasional sweet treat like locally made ice cream and home-made cupcakes.

For those who like to stay a couple of nights and make the most of the festival The Mill has a campsite for self-pitching camping and small campervans and other accommodations options include farmhouse rooms, shepherd huts and pre-erected ‘glamping’ bell tents.

The festival is informal, relaxed, and small – attendance is restricted to a maximum of 500. The festival is run by Tangled Roots who also manage the TANGLED ROOTS FESTIVAL in June and TANGLED UP IN BLUES festival in August.

    This festival sounds just perfect for us and would have loved to brought our caravan but as no EHU or waste disposal, it wouldn’t be feasible.

    So, if we come just for the day, is there any car parking and is it included in day ticket price? You do not mention anything about parking!

    • Jack Bird says:

      Car Park is a short walk from the festival site – over the wooden bridge and through the willow garden. No extra fees for Parking – all included in the ticket price.

  2. Chris says:

    Will there be a bar, or should we bring our own refreshments?

    • Jack Bird says:

      Yes, there will be a bar and a kitchen serving freshly prepared food. If you are camping you are welcome to bring your own food and drink but there will be plenty laid on.

  3. Stuart Jarrold says:

    Does the “camping “ fee include admission and does it mean camper van or just tents?
    A d is there only music on Sat 10 or are there bands on Fri 9 and Sun 11?

    • Jack Bird says:

      The weekend ticket includes camping on Friday and Saturday – either camping in tents or in a live in vehicles such as camper vans.
      The main stage is on the SAturday – midday to 11pm. on Friday evening there are usually talks, workshops (last year we have Charleston sessions), food and the bar but it is much more low key than the saturday and not all the events are yet booked. Saturday morning will be workshops (yoga, maybe a jive or swing dance session) Then the main Stage. Sunday there again be some events and talks – Yoga, etc. There will be live music but not on the main stage – it will be in our indoor venue and generally will be three performers performing more acoustically – details will on the next month.

      he that helps

    Hello, we have a self contained caravan and do not require any services although water and san disposal would be ideal, but you don’t mention caravans in any of your info does that mean they are not permitted?
