  • BANDSTAND IN THE PARK

    BANDSTAND IN THE PARK

    As is tradition at Marsden Jazz Festival, on Saturday 7th October MUSICA KIRKLEES take on hosting a full day of music at the Bandstand in the Park. Showcasing some of the finest young musicians in the area, as well as adults performers, the Bandstand will feature performances from all of the fantastic Musica Kirklees Big Band and Jazz ensembles, with some extra guest bands too.
    These events are free, but we will be asking the public to give cash or card donations (please give what you can) to Marsden Jazz Festival and the Gift of Music fund, which supports and enables Musica Kirklees to provide music lessons for children and families who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford lessons.
    There will also be a range of refreshment stalls open in the Park during the day.

    JAZZ FESTIVAL UPDATE - JULY 2023

    It’s been a while since our last update in March. We’ve been busy in the background working on plans for the future direction of the jazz festival and trying to gather resources for live jazz in Marsden in 2023. The Marsden Jazz Festival organisation is now entirely volunteer run, and we are still learning what that means in terms of our capacity and resources. Thanks for your patience.

    We’ve had a major funding blow, and yet together we can recover! When we last updated you about plans in May, we were waiting for a decision from Arts Council England.
