The 2015 festival season has now finished and our new kit has been very busy. Following the Launch Night in May its been to the Jinney Ring Blues and Folk Festivals, Blues at The Fold, Blues at Broom Hill, Tenbury Blues Fest and of course the Upton Blues Festival.
Over 40 bands have played on the new stage already, most of whom we programmed. We are now working out a plan for 2016 so watch this space.
Thanks again to all the lovely supporters who made this all possible by funding the new marquee and stage – this year we will be making a donation of £1200 to the World Land Trust saving around 12 acres of rainforest in perpetuity.
Jigsaw Community Festivals was set up in 2007 when we decided, as musicians, to create our own festival as an interesting place to play. The Wichenford Blues Festival was a success but it rained and we decided that if we were going to do this regularly we’d need to invest in a marquee.
Eight years later we have led 21 festivals and two of our festivals are now in their seventh year, so we’re getting pretty good at it. Our marquee and/or stage have been used at six Upton Blues Festivals (a Registered Charity itself) and a number of other local and not-for-profit events.
Jigsaw Community Festivals is a registered Not-for-Profit organisation and is proud to have donated £4000 so far to the World Land Trust.
