Jazz South is a three-year jazz development programme, led and hosted by Turner Sims Southampton, nationally renowned concert hall and live music-producing organisation, with funding from Arts Council England’s Ambition for Excellence scheme. Turner Sims is also an Arts Council England Funded NPO (National Portfolio Organisation), and part of the University of Southampton.

As a Turner Sims programme, accountability for Jazz South is overseen by the Turner Sims Strategic Board. In addition a Jazz South Advisory Panel, consisting of industry representatives from the across the region’s jazz sector, will offer their specialist knowledge in order to advise and make recommendations to support Jazz South’s projects and planning.

An open call-out has taken place and we will announce the advisory panel membership in due course.
