Two grants are available to apply for. The jazz promoter award offers funding of up to £2,000 for small scale promoters with previous experience of working with UK Jazz.

A second smaller ‘fledgling’ jazz promoter grant of £500 is also available for those promoters with less than 12 months experience.

Interested promoters have until midnight on 21 July to submit their applications for the grants.

Apply now on the PRS for Music Foundation’s website.

Previously supported promoters have staged gigs by the likes of Jason Yarde, Zoe Rahman, Dennis Rollins, Kit Downes Trio and Roller Trio.
