gyro Manchester will be helping with the festival’s marketing and fundraising strategies, as well as helping to execute and promote the festival’s continued growth for its 20th year of celebrations and beyond.

Danny Turnbull, managing director of gyro Manchester, said: “In my first year as a trustee, it has been a revelation to see the talent and dedication that combines to create one of the city’s most successful annual events.

“I’m not a jazz aficionado yet, but I am a born and bred Mancunian, so it has been a great privilege to be involved in such a key event in our civic calendar.”

Diane Herrod, marketing manager of the Manchester Jazz Festival, said: “The commitment and expertise of our trustees are invaluable to the festival, and Danny has been a great addition to the MJF team. We are not only looking forward to a great party to mark this landmark year for MJF, but we are already planning for the future. Watch this space!”
