A spokesperson for the festival - which began in 1978 - said today that they are continuing to plan for this year's jazz festival.
"We are aware that further announcements regarding restrictions are due to be released early next week (Tuesday). The health & safety of the public remains our absolute priority."

He said that a “very serious” presentation by health officials about a spike in Covid cases, is “having an impact”. He added that a meeting would be held next week with government and health officials on whether nightclubs and other indoor venues can reopen as planned.
