JAZZ Festival Postponed to October

The Birmingham, Sandwell & Westside Jazz Festival, held annually across the region since 1985, has been forced by Covid19 to postpone from the scheduled July dates to October 16 to 25 2020.

This, the 36th edition of the festival known internationally for its mostly-free programme of good time Jazz, Blues, Swing and Rhythm & Blues will again present performances in unusual places: museums, libraries, shopping areas, public squares, canals, a furniture store as well as in bars, cafes and hotels.

And there’s more. Lots more
Free Jitterbug and Lindy Hop dance sessions, Harmonica, Photography and Ukulele workshops open to all ages, the famous Texas Harmonica Rumble, a Make and Play Cigar Box Guitar session, a Sketch Crawl, and a Barbershop Quartet – in a Barbershop.

There will be an exhibition of Jazz Festival Photography, talks, discussions, Q&A sessions, and music appearing in the most surprising places.
Comedian Jasper Carrott states: “The cultural side just lifts Birmingham’s standing wherever you go in Britain. It’s a renowned jazz festival right in the centre of England that’s been going for 35 years, and no-one can match that.”

Once again, this time in October, right here in the Heart of The West Midlands, the Good Times are back, ready again to Rock and Roll.
