Woodbridge Festival of Art & Music

The Festival is a collaborative endeavour bringing together a passionate and eclectic group of local artists, musicians, writers, business professionals, environmentalists, food producers, schools and others in order to put on a distinctive cultural event in East Suffolk.

Aiming for broad appeal and an accessible cover charge (with children under 14 going free), the festival offers live music, visual arts and spoken word for the adults; music, crafts and talks - with a strong focus on the environment - for the kids.

Whilst the event will take place on one weekend in August, our ambition goes beyond that as we aim to inspire and support music, arts and creative industries in the local area. To help turn this into a reality, a proportion of the money raised at the festival will be donated to support music and arts education locally.



The Jess Grant Celebration charity has been set up in memory of an inspirational, brave, positive, beautiful young lady who always met the world with a smile. To celebrate Jess’ life and help raise money for the charity, we’re excited to announce the first ever JessFest concert being held at Kesgrave Community Centre on the 28th of September 2019.
We’ve already secured some great acts but we’re looking for more! If you’re in a rock band, an acoustic duo, or anything else, please get in touch by email to and tell us more!

Jess Fest 2019 - Celebrating the Life of Jess Grant

The Jess Grant Celebration charity has been set up in memory of an inspirational, brave, positive, beautiful young lady who always met the world with a smile.

Jess’ passion was music; both listening to and playing her beloved electric guitar, and more recently her drums. And it was music that helped Jess cope with the 3.5 years of gruelling treatments and operations she faced after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer, in September 2014. Even on the darkest days Jess would always want to play and listen to music and as she said to her music therapist Clare, “When I’m feeling sad I just play some music and it changes my mood”. Heartbreakingly, Jess died on 26th January 2018 aged 15.

In Jess’ memory, her parents Kevin and Anita have setup the charity The Jess Grant Celebration - helping to raise money for other children and young people with life-threatening illnesses. Inspired by Jess, the charity will focus on supporting organisations and individuals in Suffolk and Cambridgeshire through music, including the provision of grants for musical instruments and music therapy.

To celebrate Jess’ life and help raise money for the Jess Grant Celebration charity. We are holding a very special event in September 2019. JessFest will be an amazing day featuring several performances from local music acts and bands. We will also be holding a Auction of Promises which will include some amazing experiences and prizes generously donated by the charities partner businesses.
