Membership Renewal & AGM Time!

Thank you all so much for supporting Birmingham Jazz over the last 12 months and we hope you have enjoyed the gigs. Membership subscription is due on 1st September 2014 and now's the time to join or renew in time for the AGM and have your say in how Birmingham Jazz is run.


As you are aware Birmingham Jazz is a volunteer-led organisation that has no external funding and depends entirely for its income on member subscriptions, ticket sales and occasional sponsorship.  Without the support of its members Birmingham Jazz could not continue to exist.  Without BJ, the live jazz scene in Birmingham would be that much poorer.


This is a reminder that your annual membership, for the year 2014/2015 becomes due on the 1st September 2014.  Membership entitles you to benefit from concessionary ticket prices at all gigs.


Renewal/new membership costs £30 per year and donations in excess of this are always welcome.  Payment by the due date entitles full participation in the AGM including full voting rights.


You can pay either by:


1.  Bank transfer/standing order to

      Birmingham Jazz

      Account No. 65599378

      Sort Code:  08-92-99


2.   By cheque to Birmingham Jazz, 14 Hylton Street, Birmingham, B18 6HN
