WELCOME TO OUR 17/18 SEASON

Dear Friends,

Now the dust has settled on our 2017 festival preparations for 2018 are now underway and we’re busy with fundraising and grant applications. Our aim for 2018 is to continue to build what we now believe to be a world-class event showcasing the best of jazz and blues in all its formats.  We are also preparing for our primary school tour, so if you are interested in reading more about the KS1 / KS2 performance workshop do check out our promo material here. We’ll be announcing our 2018 festival programme in late October, but if you’d like to get the dates in your diary our festival is set to run from the 15th to 18th March 2018.

As we prepare to begin the process of programming the lineup for next year, we thought we’d take a moment to thank all of you for your support and encouragement over the past five years. It’s a cliché, we know but, it simply could not happen without you. If you’re interested in becoming a friend, supporter or patron of the festival, please look at the benefits you’ll gain by offering us your further support, details are on our Membership page. You can also support the festival by volunteering some of your time, check out the Volunteer page for more info!

Best Wishes from all of us on the festival team
