We will not be holding Congleton Unplugged festival 2021, this would have been March 5, 6, 7 its traditional place on first full weekend in March. We will review the option to film or show some band performances, as we did for CJAB 2020, in the next few weeks.
CONGLETON JAZZ AND BLUES - AUGUST 28, 29 2021;
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 we hope we can hold our usual venue-based festival. Based on HMGOV guidelines we will review any special requirements on live music events, we may need to be flexible in the approach we use. We will all know more as 2021 progresses, whatever we do needs to be safe and within guidelines. We will keep you updated with our plans.....
We will keep talking to venues and artistes................... and of course you our audience! As soon as we have more news we will let you know......
