In 6 years we have grown rapidly to become an eagerly awaited event on the festival calendar, along with our year-round commitment to bring jazz music to schools, and our winter concert series in lead up to the main festival.
We operate as a charity. The foyer stage at Colston can be enjoyed completely for free for all to enjoy; it's very much the "heart" of our festival. Hosting 24 musical acts over the weekend, ranging from community school jazz bands right through to the seasoned pros, as well as offering a performance platform to help develop the talented Jazz & Blues music pool right here in Bristol.
