Adopt a gig at Marsden’s 25th jazz festival

Adopt a gig at Marsden’s 25th jazz festival

It’s the 25th Marsden Jazz Festival next year and we’re celebrating by giving you the chance to adopt your very own gig for just £50.

We’re asking for help to support our free gigs after Kirklees Council confirmed it would be unable to provide funding for the 2016 festival due to budget cuts.

Over 70 free events took place at this year’s three-day festival in October including the Saturday street parade which featured two moving scrap metal sculptures along with dozens of amateur kazoo players and street band BLAST Furness.

We’re encouraging festival goers to adopt one of the free gigs at the 2016 festival, either for themselves or as a Christmas gift for friends or relatives.

Everyone who makes a donation will receive an e-certificate and have their name printed in the 2016 festival programme. You can also boost your donation to £62.50 with Gift Aid.

Our latest festival saw over 130 hours of live music take place in one weekend and we’re proud to showcase a wide range of jazz musicians from internationally-acclaimed artists to local school bands and rising talent.

Kirklees Council has been a fantastic supporter of the festival over the years and provided £10,000 this year which we used towards the free events that took place throughout the weekend.

We think adopting a gig will make a really great Christmas gift for people who enjoy coming to the festival every year and soaking up its unique atmosphere.
