Cancellation of 2021 Jazz and Blues Festival

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of the 2021 Nantwich Jazz blues and Music Festival.

Following the cancellation of last year’s festival we were initially hopeful that the pandemic would not see the festival cancelled for a second year. However due to the uncertainty that remains around the re-opening of the licensed trade, live performances and the various new strains of the virus circulating means that its highly unlikely distancing rules will be relaxed by Easter so there is no alternative but to cancel the event.

We have held off from making the announcement for as long as possible to see if there was any chance of us going ahead. Clearly public safety and the wellbeing of the people attending and performing is the most important factor and with this continued uncertainty we feel that we must clarify for all the people involved and hoping to attend.

This year would have been the 25th Festival and large plans were in the pipeline to mark the 25th year, sadly this is not to be but we are determined all being well to return with the largest and most spectacular line up next year.

Shows that were originally planned for the 2020 festival will go ahead in 2022 and all tickets purchased for 2020 will be valid in 2022.

“The show must go on…“
