Gilad Atzmon Promotes Upcoming ‘Jazza Festival’ in London for Palestinians

Gilad Atzmon Special Announcement In The Muffin Post

Hello Everybody,

Sarah Gillespie, myself and at least 40 other leading artists from UK and Palestine are trying to achieve the impossible next week.

We are promoting and playing together in a massive music festival for Palestine. We are flying musicians to London, we are mixing jazz with folk with hip hop and roots music. We all believe one thing – that artists who support Palestine must say so loudly and proudly using our notes and our voices. Jazza Festival is serious but is also a big party and we want you to join in.

The funds raised in these 2 nights will help Free Palestine Movement deliver more and more humanitarian aid to Palestine.

I am also proud and delighted to announce that Shadia Mansour, the Palestinian Hip Hop queen also joined the Jazza Festival line up.

Best Cities for Men 2010

What are the best 29 cities for men to live in 2010? The website askmen.com asked men to rank their preferences based on factors including weather, cost of living, professional life, dating, night on the town, day on the town and fresh air factor. Two cities in the USA and Australia were among the 9 best.

The top nine cities are: 1. New York City, 2. Melbourne, 3. Tokyo, 4. Madrid, 5. London, 6. Cape Town, 7. Miami, 8. Buenos Aires, and 9. Sydney.

With FIFA World Cup 2010 to be played in South Africa 44 days away, the people of Cape Town are ecstatic about its 6th place ranking.

The city’s Tourism CEO Mariette du-Toit Helmbold said that Cape Town has been winning many top accolades of late, but what is more impressive is the consistency with which the city wins. “Cape Town is continuing to make an impact internationally. It makes me incredibly proud that the Mother City is consistently named one of the top ten cities in the world. For a small city, on the very tip of the African continent, that’s a huge achievement!”

Home for Travel Industry Professionals established



For 30 years, Tom Nutley has been the man behind creating an impressive portfolio of regional, sector, and global exhibitions, including Arabian Travel Market, Luxury Travel Market, EIBTM (the global meetings industry), and the flagship World Travel Market. Now he is poised to break new ground when he launches The Travel Club on September 29th.

The Travel Club is a private members’ establishment situated in the heart of London’s West End, and dedicated to travel industry professionals from the world at large. In accordance with Mr. Nutley’s vision, ”An exclusive and inclusive place, where under one roof you can conduct business in a relaxed, convenient environment, hold meetings, conferences, product launches, socialize or network.”

“Thousands of executives who fly into London or travel from elsewhere in the United Kingdom have no choice but to head for just another hotel,” said Nutley. This is not an ideal business solution. “How much better is it to have a drink in a bar with people from the same industry, with the same problems and challenges and then go on to have a decent dinner and a comfortable bed for the night?”

The place Tom chose for establishing the Travel Club is the Grade 2 Listed 17th century building in London exclusive St. James’s Square, close to Piccadilly. It has three bars, a restaurant bistro, meeting and function rooms, library, gymnasium, spa, bedrooms and a secluded courtyard. It shares residence with the long established Naval & Military Club.

“This is where like-minded people can entertain friends and business contacts… just as if they were at home. It affords the perfect mix… grand enough for the most important occasion, friendly enough to be able to unwind,” said Nutley.

“In these difficult economic times,” he continued. “Everyone is looking for emotional as well as physical value for money. The Travel Club offers the ideal, affordable place.”

Nutley has brought together a team of five directors, all with extensive industry experience. They are working with leading industry associations on a
membership drive prior to the Club’s formal launch. Their efforts have been received positively so far.

Among the Club’s distinguished patrons are Mr Taleb Rifai, Secretary General ad interim, United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO); Lord Pendry, Former Shadow Minister for Sport and Tourism, UK; Jean-Claude Baumgarten, President, World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC); and Greg Duffell, President and CEO Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA).

Industry professionals who join The Travel Club before September 25th 2009 are designated Founder Members and save the £250 joining fee. They also enjoy full membership benefits in advance of its official opening.
