Why support us?

Manchester Jazz Festival is a charitable organisation and we rely on the generosity of our funders, sponsors and donors to help us bring more music to more people, year on year.

With your help, we can commission more ambitious projects, support more young players in their own region, reach out to more potential audience members and create more opportunities for them to take an active part in the festival.

Join the club! The mjf friends scheme offers even more opportunities to be involved with mjf, while securing the future of the festival. Your support will help promote emerging talent across the North West and beyond, and allow mjf to remain ambitious and bring music to many more people.
