NorVol Jazz aims to grow the jazz audience and help members to prosper by sharing best practice and improving marketing and access to jazz for all. Membership is open to any volunteer supported organisations involved in jazz promotion in the Northern region of England.

Yorkshire and the Humber is alive with jazz. With a rich and vibrant community of musicians, promoters, audiences, educators and venues, the region can boast a national reputation for jazz, regularly attracting distinguished national and international jazz artists to its clubs and venues. There is also a vibrant grass roots pub scene. We believe Yorkshire and the Humber has the strongest network of promoters outside London.

The region is host to a growing number of jazz weekends and festivals – Scarborough, Cleethorpes, Marsden, NCEM York, Burton Agnes and Hull. Established festivals like Harrogate International Festival, FuseLeeds, Grassington and Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival also feature artists from the wide spectrum of jazz and improvised music. They add to the wealth of jazz on offer in Yorkshire and the Humber.
