With some welcome funding from the Arts Council of England we are working with promoters across the West Midlands building an active network of like minded clubs.
We are getting support and input from Stuart Isaacs of EMJazz - in the East Midlands the Arts Council has been funding a Network for some years.
Arts Council England have provided funding support for Jazz across the West Midlands and pave the way for more collaboration on things like regional tours and planning gigs to avoid clashes as well as cross promotion and marketing.
So far we are working with The Jazz in Wolverhampton, Lichfield Arts, Jazz Coventry, Leamington Jazz, Kenilworth Jazz, Stratford Jazz, Left Bank Village Hereford, Heron Oswestry, Kidderminster Jazz and Clun Valley Jazz.
The Network has its own website you can view here https://www.jazzwestmidlands.org and see what's on across the region.
