A reminder that the Birmingham International Jazz Festival started yesterday. There are no particular marquee names as such but the ethos is to put on as much jazz music in as many places as possible for the next week.
You can see the programme here but otherwise don’t be surprised to stumble across something if you’re out and about this weekend.
Also, not strictly affiliated with the festival but not a million miles away (the Birmingham Jazz Youth Group are on the bill), this event from Celebrating Sanctuary following on from June’s Refugee Week has been brought to my attention:
It’s on Sunday 6 July from 5pm til late at the Yardbird.Â Entry is free.
