The Kiama Jazz and Blues Festival is approaching – a major live music event for the coast and for those music genres, but social media pages & the Bugle are reporting the sad tale of a Kiama venue Fillmores. described as a space for the arts, and culture, and bringing our community together. 

The venue has been directed by council staff to close its live music in Central Kiama – except for the duration of the Jazz and Blues event.

The council has posted on Facebook ‘Kiama Council fully supports Fillmores, and all our other local venues hosting live music for the Kiama Jazz and Blues Festival.

Local planning regulations allow live music at cafes, bars, clubs and other businesses for special events such as the festival. End quote.

However, others have posted with words like “I’m shocked! The one place that supports cultural events and artists.” “Kiama (and all regional towns) need places like this.” And “It’s a wonderful space, and it would be a huge shame to lose it.”

A petition has been commenced on Facebook.
