Nine National Jazz Blues Festival Documents 65-66

Nine typed/handwritten documents relating to the 5th & 6th National Jazz Blues Festival 1965-66. The 1965 Festival was held at Richmond & saw performances by the likes of The Who, Yardbirds, Graham Bond etc. The 1966 festival was held at Windsor 1966 & witnessed one of the earliest gigs ever by Cream, plus performances by The Who, Small Faces, Move, Spencer Davis etc.

Relating to the 1965 Festival is a letter to Harold Pendleton (owner of The Marquee & organiser of the NJB Festivals) from a scaffolding contractor plus a draft letter from Pendleton to the Richmond Athletic Associoation disputing a bill of £250 for "ground damage" at the event.

Concerning the 1966 Festival are various order notes for posters, flyers etc, plus a letter from Barbara Pendleton about chairs for the event & a fascinating letter of support written to Harold Pendleton suggesting that Richmond was awash with "young undesirables" & that the festival-goers were of a "much higher intellectual standard" (ie, the Festival was not responsible for bad behaviour in the town) & the writer goes on to decry the "old fogies of Windsor" who were subsequently objecting to the forthcoming Festival being moved to their town!

A little collection with some historical value & interest.
