The 2016 festival season is well underway and the stage and marquee will be going out five times this Summer. We are also rather proud that we have developed Upton Blues Festival to the point where it has outgrown the stage and marquee.
In 2015 following the Launch Night in May the new kit was used at 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 and over 40 bands played on the new stage.
Thanks again to all the lovely supporters who made this all possible by funding the new marquee and stage - in 2015 we made 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 also 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.
