About Us

J-Night is one of the leading producers of world jazz in the North of England.

We produce the Hull Jazz Festival (summer and winter editions) and deliver a year-round festival offer in Hull, using our ability to build, maintain and develop effective partnerships with organisations such as Freedom Festival, Hull Truck Theatre and Hull City Council.

We produce programmes that give audiences access to high quality artists and we provide developmental opportunities for local and regional artists, including those from diverse backgrounds, through Hull Jazz Festival, the Nelson Street stage at Freedom Festival, Giant Steps and rural touring.

J-Night is a National Portfolio Organisation of Arts Council England, a founder of Jazz North, a creative partner of Freedom Festival and a support organisation for Hull 2017 UK City of Culture.
