A date for your diary is Saturday 30th April 2016 which has been designated as International Jazz Day by the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

International Jazz Day celebrates the historical, cultural and educational contribution of this popular genre of music. The day aims to spread international awareness about this unique musical style; and to promote the cultural, and social values that Jazz stands for. We are currently exploring opportunities to present a special event on this day to help spread the word of how important this music genre is and to explain our future vision, sponsorship opportunities for organisations and how we can share our exciting vision with you.

Music crosses many boundaries and unites people all of ages, backgrounds and social standing. Jazz is a 4 letter word that means so much which is thought provoking, inspirational and brings joy to so many across the world.We ask you to join us and to share to celebrate this wonderful music with your friends and family.

Please do make contact with us if you are a musician, composer, and songwriter or have a band and would like to expand your horizons by working with us in both 2016 and 2017.
