It is with absolute devastation we inform you that the founder and organiser of the Nantwich Jazz, Blues and Music Festival Phillip Martin was taken from us on Wednesday 15th November. His wife, Susan and daughter, Abbigail want to thank everyone for their condolences and kind words at this unbearable time. To say a final farewell to this wonderful man, a celebration of his life will be held at 1pm on Monday 4th December at St Mary’s Church, Nantwich. Family flowers only please. (Donations to Nantwich Christie Hospital Support Group).
Phillip was so proud of the jazz festival and the town it was hosted in. He loved Nantwich and it was always his dream for the festival to live on and continue as his legacy. Next year’s festival will go ahead as he had planned and as he would have wanted.
A jazz event, now dedicated to Phillip, is being held at Nantwich Civil Hall on November 24.
