Important Announcement re 2020 Festival
Teignmouth Jazz and Blues Festival 2020
16th-18th October (provisional)
After a great Festival in 2019 we are finding 2020 a year of uncertainty as local government cuts bite into community grants. Local Government funding has been the backbone in subsidising Teignmouth Jazz and blues Festival for many years but this year we cannot not be sure of this continuing and so the Committee has decided, that as a charity, we cannot risk committing ourselves to the considerable outlay for the Festival which cannot run without grant aid. So, until new sources of funding are found we must remain ‘provisional’. We are pursuing such funds and hope that by May we will be able to go ahead.
Our funding strategy is to pursue mainstream grant funding such as the Arts Council but also to ask you our audience for your support and an imaginative ‘giving’ menu will soon be with you. Your support will play an important part in helping us convince other funders that TJB is worth supporting.
We are however in a position not only to continue our club nights and other events with an expanded programme of not only Jazz but the Blues and other music which we think you may like. Have a look at the exciting programme and make sure you come along for a great night out:-And don’t forget to tell your friends.
