2020 British Jazz Awards Cancelled

It has been decided not to proceed with the 2020 edition planned for this Autumn.The award is always based on a musician’s performances in the year in question.

To make an award in a year which gave pitifully few opportunities for musicians to perform would be a mockery of the integrity of these well respected awards.

2020 will be the first time that the awards have not taken place in a history dating back to the launch, by Humphrey Lyttelton and Benny Green, in 1987.We look forward to the awards resuming in 2021 – follow us on Facebook for news of nominations and online voting.
