Sutton Coldfield will be buzzing with the sound of live music this July, as the Royal Town prepares to host the annual Birmingham, Solihull and Sandwell Jazz Festival.
Having taken part in the annual event for eight years, Sutton Coldfield is set to hold a packed programme of free concerts in venues across the town, including Bodega, Simpsons Gin Bar, The Three Tuns, Brewhouse & Kitchen, Sutton Coldfield Town Hall, Sutton Coldfield Library, Panache and Eleon.
Local music-lovers can expect entertainment from a spectacular line-up of jazz and blues artists funded by Sutton Coldfield Business Improvement District, with the likes of The Whiskey Brothers, Blue Silk, King Pleasure and the Biscuit Boys, and New Orleans Jumps Band, to name a few, taking to the stage.
Now in its 34th year, the popular festival will take place from Friday 20th July until Sunday 29th July, with over 200 performances across Birmingham and beyond throughout the week.
In an exciting month for the Royal Town, the Birmingham, Solihull and Sandwell Jazz Festival will also coincide with Sutton Coldfield’s annual Month of Music Festival, bringing even more live music to venues throughout July.
The month-long celebration will return for its second year, showcasing local talent in various locations and at the Sutton Has Musical Talent competition on Saturday 7th July.
Mike Bushell, Sutton Coldfield Town Centre BID Manager, said:
“We are very much looking forward to taking part in the Birmingham, Solihull and Sandwell Jazz Festival once again. The event is an unmissable event in Birmingham’s musical calendar, and this year we are hosting more live performances than ever before.
“As the festival falls within the same month as our Month of Music celebrations, it is going to be a jam packed July in Sutton Coldfield, with plenty of performances and festivities to enjoy!”
Tim Jennings, Commercial and Development Director, added:
“The Jazz Festival enjoys a special relationship with Sutton Coldfield. Its venues and residents have an unquestionable quality, and we’re all very much looking forward to ten Jazz and Blues packed days in July.”
