It has been so busy over the last few days.
First of all I was at the Upton Jazz Festival from Friday through to Sunday. Fantastic music with a mixed bag of weather ranging from weather warnings for thunder storms on Friday (didn’t I know about that – I forgot to take my wellies!!!) and heatwaves by Sunday.
Steve Boffy who organises the Boffy Art Fairs is a talanted man because not only does he help support the local arts and crafts community but he also organises events with musicians. Steve was running the ‘Best of Young Jazz’ and he also did all the fundraising for it.
The project involved over 200 young musicians in school master-classes with professional Jazz musicians, auditions across the county and a venue that gave many young people their first opportunity to share their talent with the public. The whole project has been heralded as a huge success and plans are now being discussed to continue the project in the future.
After the Jazz Festival I then had a Ladies in Business event at the Convent School in Worcester on Wednesday where I was an exhibitor. I have attended all of the events held by Ladies in Business and from all of the networking events I have been to I look forward the most to these as they are so friendly and relaxed. My exhibition was a huge success and I am looking forward to the next event in October.
Well I better be off now as I literally have got to go to the Grange School in Worcester for the two day Summer Fayre.
