Volunteers wanted to help run Leyburn Jazz Festival

Volunteers are wanted to help run Leyburn Jazz Festival.

The first festival was organised in the town last year and provided a wide variety of jazz enjoyed by hundreds.

The festival was organised by a team of three — Colin Bailey and Neil Dutton and Gerald Hodgson.

Gerald said: “It was a pleasure working together as we did in complete harmony, but it was a lot of work for three volunteers so this year we are looking for one or two more to spread the load.

“Interest in jazz may provide the incentive to help but what we are seeking are reliable people to help with the administration and event management.”

The second Leyburn Jazz Festival will be in a different format this year with a series of concerts taking place at venues in the town.

Anyone interested in helping is asked to contact Gerald Hodgson at geraldhodgson7@gmail.com
