The festival have been doing a collaboration event with the University of the West of England for a number of years. The project engages students on the Event Management course to organise a night under the banner of the Jazz Festival.
Any profits go to the charity 'Maddy's Mark' who support mental health in young adults. https://www.maddysmark.com/
What better way to get ready to celebrate our main festival than to support this warm-up event?!
