Become a Friend of the Festival

Become a Friend of the Festival in this iconic 25th Anniversary year, and help us use the Festival as a springboard for the next generation of young music-makers and music-lovers, and the most promising emerging talent on the UK jazz scene.

We know that music can have a profound positive impact on the social and personal development of children and young people.

NEEDED: FRIENDS for young people

This is your opportunity to play a significant role in an emerging artist's future career

NEEDED: FRIENDS for Emerging Artists


We are constantly on the look out for supporters who share our passion for ensuring a bright future for the next generation, and for giving life changing opportunities to emerging artists.

Without additional support beyond box office income, these programmes and platforms simply couldn’t take place.

Friends of the Festival become part of the Festival family and are crucial in our ability to continue offering these opportunities.
