The Classic Jazz Party takes place at the four-star Village Hotel & Leisure Centre, Silverlink North, Cobalt Business Park, North Tyneside NE27 0BY. This is about four miles from the coast, just off the A191 and accessed from the A19 or the A1058 Coast Road. The Village has been home to the Whitley Bay International Jazz Festival/Classic Jazz Party for the past seven years!
Opened in 2002, the Village has 157 very comfortable bedrooms, three bars, two restaurants, a Starbucks coffee shop, a Health & Fitness centre and a 25-meter swimming pool with jacuzzi available to all guests staying in the hotel. There is ample free parking. Public spaces are excellent, the staff are extra-friendly and food and drink are reasonably priced. Public transport service is good between the hotel and the coast area, and East Coast Taxis are very reasonable. More information is available at www.village-hotels.co.uk/newcastle.
Staying at the Village is highly recommended, but of course not obligatory.
When booking a room with the Village Hotel, telephone the hotel and quote promotional code "JAZZ".
Bedrooms are currently only available at the Village Urban Resort Newcastle to Jazz Festival attendees, so you must add the promo code when checking availability, or alternatively you can call reservations to book on 0191 338 5245 (option 1 for reservations, and option 2 again for individual bookings)
If, however, you should wish to stay elsewhere, details of other accommodation in the area are available from the friendly folks at Whitley Bay Tourist Information Centre (phone 0191 200 5895 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org), who will be more than happy to assist you.
