After the success of Blues in Town last year Nick Garner has decided to take the event to the next level now re-named Blues In the City after Chelmsford gaining City status in the Queen’s Jubilee Awards.

This year the event will run over four days, from 27th to 30th September, at different venues in and around Chelmsford. Nick has teamed up with Blues Matters, The New Crawdaddy Blues Club, Hooga and the all new Evoke nightclub and other local pubs and venues to make it all happen.   Who is it all for? This year again it is to benefit The J’s Hospice who deliver hospice, respite and end of life care and bereavement support for 18 to 40 year olds with life limiting and life threatening conditions their families and carers in the comfort of their own homes.
