Last chance to adopt a gig for 2017 festival

Adopt a gig at

We’re about to finalise the programme for this year’s Marsden Jazz Festival which means it’s your last chance to become a 2017 gig adopter.

We put on over 80 free gigs and events at last year’s festival and we’re hoping we’ll be able to line up a similar number this year with the help of festival goers.

Everyone who takes part in our Adopt a Gig scheme helps to support the free gigs at the festival plus you’ll receive an e-certificate and get your name printed under your gig in the 2017 free festival brochure.

It costs £50 to adopt a gig, either for yourself or for a friend or relative, and we’re usually able to claim an additional £12.50 in Gift Aid from the government as we’re a registered charity.

If you want to adopt of gig at the 2017 festival then please complete the form on our website by midnight on Thursday 27 July.

This year’s festival will also feature our Saturday street parade, an artisan market in Marsden’s Victorian park and over 100 hours of live music – including dozens of free gigs in pubs and clubs, and on our outdoor stages.

It’s really important to us that the majority of the gigs at the festival are free so that as many people as possible are able to experience live jazz music. But we need the support of businesses and festival goers to keep the gigs free.

We were delighted with the response we got to the Adopt a Gig scheme when we held it for the first time at our 25th festival last year and we hope even more people will sign up to adopt a gig in 2017.

We’re also expanding the initiative for this year’s festival to give local businesses the chance to adopt their own stage from just £500. The offer includes a stage banner as well as two free headliner tickets or a pass to see all of the festival’s New Stream artists.
