Okay everyone, show us your jazz hands
The Inverloch Jazz Festival is on from Friday 9 March to Monday 12 March 2018 for a long weekend of jazz by the sea.

The festival is celebrating its 25th anniversary with all types of jazz on offer in three venues around the centre of Inverloch, a gorgeous seaside town in South Gippsland.

There will be over 40 fabulous acts playing from Friday night through to Monday's free event, Jazz in the Glade. Click here for details of the performers.
