Marsden Jazz Festival
Jazz In The Yorkshire Pennines

Why Support Us?

Marsden Jazz Festival is a registered charity and as such it relies on fundraising each year to enable the festival to continue. Over the years the festival has been supported by a wide range of individuals, businesses and funding partners. Our income from donors, grant giving bodies and sponsors enables us to continue to provide so much of the festival without charge.

The festival offers a range of supporter opportunities depending on whether you are an individual or business such as adopting gigs, placing adverts in our programme, sponsoring our annual t-shirt or even being one of our principal festival sponsors.

Individual Giving

Over the festival weekend we are supported by a fantastic group of volunteers whose help and hard work is vital to the smooth operation of the festival, but we really need more help!
