Manchester Jazz Festival, another one of the things the city does well

It will soon be the Manchester Jazz Festival again* that season of live outside music in some of the finest squares the city has to offer.

I fell across it purely by accident on a lunch time Tuesday many years ago.

So for no other reason than I like jazz, enjoy listening to it in our city, here are some of the pictures of memorable days in St Ann’s Square.

This year the festival starts on July 22 and lasts till the 31st.

82 gigs, 550 artists from the UK and abroad.

There are 9 venues, RNCM - Royal

Northern College of Music, Band on the Wall, Matt and Phreds, Manchester Central Library, HOMEmcr, Albert Square, Manchester, The Midland Hotel, The Portico Library and St. Ann's Church. and a heap of good music.

Location; Manchester
