Announcing the 37th Birmingham, Sandwell & Westside Jazz Festival

With the shops, bars and clubs of Birmingham and Sandwell reopening and spring in the air, the Birmingham, Sandwell & Westside Jazz Festival is counting down until it welcomes back music fans for another 10 jazz-packed days.

In a flush of optimism about the return of live music to Birmingham's streets this summer, the Festival has published a brand new photofilm. Featuring the work of photographer in residence Merlin Daleman over previous editions of the Festival, the short video acts as a reminder of the enjoyment to be had at Europe's largest free jazz party.

Festival Director Jim Simpson commented: "from Friday 16th to Sunday 25th July we're looking forward to more than 100 live performances of hot jazz and cool blues across the region, with almost all of it free to the public"

The full programme of events will be published on at the start of June.
