Marsden Jazz Festival
Jazz In The Yorkshire Pennines

What's On

Marsden Jazz Festival is proud to present a diverse explosion of music in the beautiful setting of the Colne Valley in the Yorkshire Pennines.

The festival is on the second weekend of October each year and throughout the rest of the year the team is hard at work planning for the next festival.

Our 2019 festival will take place from the 11th – 13th October, and our programme will be revealed in the coming weeks.

In the meantime we’d like to show you a taste of the festival – past gigs, the settings, stories from the festival – that all form a part of this unique event.

We programme a wide range of professional, amateur and community musicians who all deliver a high quality range of music.
