Support The Festival

The Birmingham City Council, currently grappling with financial difficulties, has announced drastic cuts to its budget for arts and culture and is unable to give any support whatsoever to The Jazz & Blues Festival. The council has supported the festival for 39 years, but never more than one year at a time. Each year since 1985 the festival has had to apply to the council for one year’s funding at a time and their decision to withdraw all funding puts the festival in a precarious position.
We understand that times are tough for many, but we believe that together, we can overcome this challenge and ensure that the Birmingham Jazz & Blues Festival continues to inspire, entertain, and unite us for years to come.
