About the event

Immerse yourself in Django Reinhardt's intoxicating sounds for the final Manouche fling of the summer. 4 days of superb 1930s style Parisian Jazz with evening concerts and all day jamming at the venue in separate spots. Outside too if the weather is kind, and it's all totally free!

Bring your instrument, join in with the jams, have a beer, watch, listen, play along, it's up to you. Then each evening a different gypsy jazz band will perform, the lineup so far:

Thursday evening - Gitano (Bristol)

Friday evening  - La Vie en Rose (Exeter)

Saturday evening - Hot Flamingo (Yorkshire)

Sunday Evening - TBC

And of course daily hot hot hot jams from noon onwards, open to all!

We'll look to run Gypsy Jazz instrument workshops on Saturday morning if demand is there, please message to register your interest. These will incur a charge.

The Riff Corner is conveniently located right in the middle of this small seaside town near Bristol. There are campsites very near to the venue as well as air bnbs and hotels within reach for non locals.

Come along and enjoy some late summer Django joy!
