    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.
