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.

Everyone who makes a donation will receive an e-certificate and have their name printed in the 2016 festival programme.

Jazz legend returns to Marsden for 25th festival

Jazz legend returns to Marsden for 25th festival

A jazz legend will be returning to Marsden this October to perform at the 25th Marsden Jazz Festival.

Digby Fairweather appeared at our first festival in 1992 and will once again be at the 19th century Mechanics Hall in the centre of the village this year, performing alongside BBC Radio 2’s Paul Jones for their “Rocking in Rhythm” show – their only appearance together in 2016.

Our new home

Our new home

We’ve moved to a new home inside the 19th century Mechanics Hall in the centre of Marsden.

The Mechanics is our main headline venue during the festival weekend so we’re delighted we’ve been able to get an office inside the building ahead of it transferring to community ownership in the autumn.

Our rent will also help contribute to the future of Marsden Library, where our new office is based, and we’ll be joining local theatre company Mikron, who are existing tenants in the Mechanics and run our box office for us.
