Can we thank all of you for supporting Birmingham Jazz over recent times and to contributing to our ongoing programme. Having a regular audience is one of our long term ambitions for the organisation to confirm the place Birmingham Jazz has with the jazz community.
We had a good 2015 with some of the best musicians in Europe today. We also were able to expand our activities with two funded events: The Legends Festival in July and Black History Month in October. This extended programme offer will be repeated in 2016, this year with two Festivals and a celebration event. The Legends Festival will take place in May (probably the regular period from now on) and a JQJAZZ16 Festival in July. In addition it's Birmingham Jazz's fortieth anniversary in September so a special programme will be presented to celebrate.
