The Newport Jazz Weekend

20th - 22nd July 2011

Policy Statement

This 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. Audited accounts will be made available after the event.

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.

We are going to need lots of volunteers to help us run the Newport Jazz Weekend. We will need stewards, drivers and people to help with sound & lights.

Can you help? Can you spare some time either during the event or the run up?
