Just a reminder for anyone who wants to book tickets for this excellent event that our EarlyBird pricing ends this weekend - Saturday night in fact. You can book on-line at http://newportjazzweekend.co.uk/tickets.php or drop a downloadable booking form in the post (just date it before Saturday!).

Lots to hear - a great free fringe as always; check the Bargemans Rest in Newport - plus a headlining National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) on the Sunday afternoon. More details to follow.

Hope to see you there again.

Who wants to come to Newport? The Jazz Festival takes over a selection of venue’s some of which are free some are pay to go in, details from; http://www.newportjazzwe...nd.co.uk/docs/2017flyer.

Shockwave intends arriving at Newport on Friday late afternoon and have a get together of any boats that are there about 6pm and a pontoon party on the Saturday at 6:00pm or when people arrive.

On the Friday evening, we want to see a band at the ’Bargemans Rest’.

On Saturday the Bargemans Rest has traditional jazz 13.00 to 1500, which is nicely timed for a short walk to ‘Newport Ale House’ to see ‘Two Wight Guys’ and possibly drink the odd pint.

We are considering paying to see ‘Gary Plumley’s Alley Cats’ at the Quay Arts centre on Saturday evening at 21.30 to 23.30 but there’s obviously time between the above events to have a Pimms party on the pontoon and maybe even snatch a meal…..

June 2nd high tide Newport is at 18:07 (3.80mtr) and on Saturday 3rd June high tide is at 19:11 (3.80mtr.) Sunday 4th morning tide is 07:30 (3.50mtr) to come home.

Newport Harbour is 5Nm upriver from Cowes. The harbour website is on the Isle of Wight council website, its not easy to find but it is very detailed when you do get to it. The harbour tel. is 01983 823 885. Harbour costs are approximately £15 per night. Keys for the facilities are loaned out from the Harbour master.

As always, it’s the skippers responsibility to decide to sail, but feel free to ask any questions.

Julie and Ieuan Stanley 023 8084 4221is our correct number, number is wrong on other ad.

Hello everybody, the weekend's programme is now finalised, including the free "fringe" gigs, and you can find the details here http://newportjazzweekend.co.uk/programme.php

Gigs with letters are the paid-for ones, no letter, no entry fee (but there may be T&Cs at some venues).

There's more information at our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/NewportJazzWeek/ where you can also see the four pages of our full Festival Programme

I'm pretty heavily involved, but I hope to see some of you around Newport that weekend. Enjoy! John Clack
