You may have expected JAM on the Marsh to have been cancelled, but this is not the case. We are working incredibly hard to prepare a virtual festival that supports artists and performers, venues, our loyal audience and dedicated supporters – in a way that adheres to strict and rigorous social distancing guidelines and safety measures – ultimately resulting in a festival that we can all be proud of, accessible, free to all.
Festival Highlights include 9 concerts and 3 exhibitions:
- World Premiere of Paul Mealor’s Piano Concerto with the London Mozart Players
- Photography exhibition of Jon Foreman’s beach art by aerial drone photographer Carsten Birkebaek
- The Gesualdo Six, Fauré Requiem, with new poetry by Grahame Davies
- Onyx Brass perform British jazz for brass quintet
Award-winning photographer Tristan Fewings along with Romney Marsh photographer Susan Pilcher present contrasting retrospective photography exhibitions based on Romney Marsh: one connected to the sky and sea and the other a series of extraordinary night photographs. The third exhibition is of astonishing aerial drone photography by Carsten Birkebaek, of Jon Foreman’s beach art, from last year’s festival on Dymchurch beach featured on BBC Inside Out South East.
