Saturday and Sunday August 28/29 

We can’t wait for summer and the music and community spirit that comes with Congleton Jazz and Blues!

We want to keep to our key missions as a Town Centre event and generating great local community spirit, to this effect we are working with venues and artistes now to build a programme. We hope we can hold our usual venue-based festival, assuming progress continues through lifting of the CV19 lockdown.

We will continue to review HMGOV guidelines and any special requirements on live music events, we may need to be flexible in the approach we use. Whatever we do needs to be safe, within guidelines and welcoming to everyone as we come out of what has been difficult year for us all.


We will keep you updated with our plans here and on our Facebook page
