Policy StatementThis event is being organised by a local committee of musicians and jazz fans.
Our aim is to promote jazz on the Isle of Wight. Members of the committee will not receive any financial reward. Inspected accounts will be made on request.
The committee will cover the cost of the main venues and headline acts. This will be funded by sponsorship, ticket sales and other fund-raising activities.
Any subsequent profits will go towards funding future events and a donation to charity (IW Mountbatten Hospice).
We will encourage other performances during the period. However, we will not act as agents. It will be the responsibility of the performers and venues to negotiate between themselves.

Over a thousand tickets sold, several concerts "sold out", some fantastic jazz and everyone (well, nearly everyone*) went away happy.
We have some great photographs coming in, like the one of Julian Stringle shown here, which we will be publishing in a few days time. In the meantime click here to see a preview.
