Fancy making the most of the May Bank Holiday Weekend? The seaside town of Bray plays host to the 9th Bray Jazz Festival, from 2nd to the 4th of May. Showcasing a mix of national and international artists in contemporary jazz, headlining acts this year include Maceo Parker and his band, Mare Nostrum, Orchestra National de Jazz, Liu Fang, Fuzzy Logic with Tom Arthurs, Togetherness, and Yurodny, to name but a few. Read on for more…
With 37 gigs on offer, over 3 days, the ninth Bray Jazz Festival offers a jam-packed programme and is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
This year the organisers have made it a little bit easier. You can book on line for concerts at Bray Town Hall, Mermaid Arts Centre, and the Royal Hotel. It’s worth noting though that while some gigs require entrance fees other events are free of charge.
Got a little time to spare between jazz sessions? How about a leisurely stroll along Bray seafront promenade, or maybe a visit to Bray Heritage Centre, Killrudery House and Gardens or Powerscourt House, Gardens and Waterfall. Or perhaps a quick trip to bustling capital made easy by the local DART connection to Dublin city centre.
For somewhere to stay check out Bray accommodation. If you’re depending on public transport you can also opt for Dublin hotels or Dublin guesthouses in the city centre or anywhere along the DART line. Check out Dublin hotels near the Dart line.
