Brecon Jazz Festival 2020 : 7th 8th 9th August
Friday, 27 March 2020
Coronavirus: COVID-19 Information
The situation facing the Brecon Jazz Festival, like so many other events and groups across Wales and the world, is changing daily. We are reviewing our Brecon Jazz Festival plans in line with the pandemic developments and will continue to monitor these alongside the latest guidance and advice from the Welsh Government, key partners and Public Health Wales. We are also in touch with other event organisers, funders and jazz networks in Wales/UK and EU.
Clearly now, the safety and wellbeing of all is paramount – the general public, jazz volunteers, artists, audience, supporters and visitors, and those involved in the BJ outdoor activities.
We will liaise with stakeholders to find ways in which we can support the ‘Brecon’ and ‘Jazz’ communities by looking for workable arrangements for after these difficult times, and to keep a balance between optimism and realism.
We are looking at various options. We know that in due course, Welsh Government and Arts organisations will want to support the renewal and revival of music and the arts, and we will want to play our part in that. It is uncertain when that will be. Everyone knows, of course, the importance of music in wellbeing, enjoyment, and our coming together as people in such celebratory events.
At significant junctures, we will put information out and make contact via email, our website and social media. Please register to receive our news, and this can be done through the website, www.breconjazz.org
We are grateful to everyone for their continued support – those cheerful as well as sympathetic and constructive messages. Please look after yourselves and others.
Also, find ways to support musicians and artists direct and via charitable organisations – so that we, and they, will have capacity for the future when it is needed.
The information above is correct as of 27th March 2020.
Our not-for-profit organisation has to face reality. We need to raise funds to support us as we plot a sustainable route to secure Brecon Jazz Festival going forward.
We thank everyone who made it possible for us to curate a viable “Street Jazz and Jazz in Town” experience last year. If you are in a position to support us again, please visit our Crowd Funding page for more information.
A reminder from previous years:
