Costs/Accommodation

The Generations in Jazz Board appoints an official Accommodation Committee to secure suitable accommodation at affordable prices for registered participants. This assists groups to reduce costs and make the Festival as accessible as possible. Accommodation allocations are made based on selection and venue capacities.

School registration is necessary for the organizing committee to properly plan places of accommodation, food provision and seating and venue arrangements for school performances and public concerts.

We know that Generations In Jazz is about great music, food, fellowship and a great place to stay. That can be different things to different people, so we would ask that you indicate your first preference, and a member of our accommodation team will be in touch to discuss available options based on your registered numbers.

Whilst the options below are used as guide to the allocation of schools to venues, please note that we cannot guarantee your first selection. Pricing below is per person and applies for students and teachers when bookings are made. A PDF of 2017 costings can be viewed below of downloaded as a PDF file (click here)
