AN open meeting to discuss the possibility of holding a 2015 jazz/soul seaside festival is to be held in Barry.

The meeting will be held in Committee Room 2 of Barry Civic Offices on Monday, August 18 starting at 7pm.

Organisers are trying to get a seaside event for the town in June next year. They are now seeking volunteers to get involved in the organising committee and for sponsorship of the event.

It is planned to have bands and acts across a number of venues across the town.

If you are interested in getting involved please come along to the meeting or contact Councillor Richard Bertin on 07973 153987.
