FESTIVAL goers jumped and jived to the sounds at this year’s Solihull Jazz Festival.

The three-day festival proved to be bigger, better and jazzier than any other before as record numbers turned out over the weekend.

A total of 28 bands and solo artists took to 17 stages across the town centre in Mell Square, bars and restaurants.

The event, arranged by Solihull BID, took place alongside the Jazzy Jungle Trail which saw families seeking the animals on the trail and the food and drink market.

Melanie Palmer, chief executive at Solihull BID, said: “This was the best-attended Jazz Festival to date, bringing additional footfall and spend to the town centre.

“It’s always rewarding to see visitors enjoying the vibrancy that this event brings, a community coming together to have a super day out.

“The Jazz Festival is one of many events the BID arranges throughout the year. Keep an eye on the BID’s social media for the latest announcements.”

Observer photographer Jon Mullis was on hand to capture the opening day.
