This year will be the Congleton Jazz and Blues Festival's eigth annual event.

The weekend is produced by a very small dedicated team with support from congleton community projects. It is great fun working on the project, every year is different, and every year it gets amazingly more difficult to run the project, we can always do with a little help!

If you would like to volunteer to help, drop us a message on facebook!


Funding comes from a number of sources, the Town Trust and the Inclosure Trust, the Town Council, two key local sponsors AD Profile and Beartown Brewery, programme advertisers and  the venues. We could not put on the festival without the support of all these people and businesses.


At Congleton we endeavour to promote as much jazz as we can in our programme, whilst still incorporating a broad spectrum of blues music.


The festival is a great opportunity to encourage business within the town; the event is now recognised across the whole region.


We pride ourselves on being one of the biggest jazz and blues festivals in Cheshire, and we hope the event continues to develop and expand.
