Jazz Promoter Seminar

How can I run a successful jazz venue?

Fancy being the next Ronnie Scott? Or maybe you just want to see more live jazz happening in your area? Want to come and meet some successful Northern Jazz promoters and get their advice?

This event is aimed at people who want to become jazz promoters, or who may already do some jazz promotion and want to do it better. You may be a musician wanting to develop venue for people to play, a volunteer with an interest in jazz, or a promoter in other areas of the arts wanting to include more jazz in your festival or programme. This event will help you achieve that.

The seminar will focus on: finding a venue, developing an audience, planning a programme, developing the local jazz community through workshops, masterclasses, jam session and paying for it all! It also provides a prime opportunity to network with successful Northern Jazz promoters.

This event is FREE to attend, but spaces are limited so to avoid disappointment we would ask participants to sign-up in advance via the form below.
