CASTLE HOTEL – @Brecon Jazz Club-Monthly & Festival 2024-25
 

CASTLE HOTEL

Ballroom Stage & Lawns
The Castle of Brecon Hotel sits at the top of the town and has welcomed and hosted many big names as well as rising stars of the international jazz scene. With its amazing Ballroom and panoramic views of the Beacons, this venue has been part of everyone’s memories of ‘the jazz’ from the start. That spirit is evoked again usually with the sounds of a fantastic Big Band or Latin Lineup to start off the main Festival Weekend.
The Castle Hotel will also hosts other events on during the jazz weekend, see Local Beacon Guide for details. This venue is fully accessible, including wheelchair access.

“The beauty of Brecon is the sheer variety of music on offer, covering all jazz styles from trad to the avant garde. Also the way that the Festival takes over the whole town still makes it something truly special” Jazz Mann 2008

"Whatever your strategy, Brecon Jazz delivers, thanks to its geography and programming"John L Walters. The Guardian 2011

"Yes, it’s had its ups and downs, every bit as dramatic as the Beacons which rise above it, but the Brecon Jazz Festival has learned some tough survival skills as a result".  Peter Bacon, UK Jazz News 2018

"Virtual BJF2020 - Considering the obstacles associated with the pandemic, it was the triumph of organisation and technical expertise over limitation – so much so that while one might have wanted the real thing, its substitute may well develop a life of its own".  Nigel Jarrett, Wales Arts Review 2020

"The classic Brecon weekend is 9-11 August but there are several other excellent events around the festival this year including family jazz and dance on the first weekend and a film and jazz focus on the last". Tim Dickeson, Jazzwise 2024
