Celebrating 25 years
Launched in 1992, with the objective of utilising the Mechanics Hall and to contribute to the regeneration of the village, Marsden Jazz Festival celebrated its 25th birthday in October 2016.
The Festival committee, with the help of volunteers and the Heritage Lottery, have marked this astonishing achievement with a year long project to create 25 digital portraits of outstanding contributors to the festival and the village.
These online portraits, mixing words, music, images and video are now available to view or download alongside information for schools and a village discovery trail.
Village Trail Brochure
This village discovery trail will take you around the village to places of historical interest. The brochure includes facts and photographs that bring Marsden to life.
