Celebrating the 10th Festival Season
JAM on the Marsh
4-16 July 2023
JAM on the Marsh returns to the mediaeval churches and stunning landscape of Romney Marsh, bringing a festival of outstanding music, outdoor theatre, poetry and exhibitions.
New Festival Curator, Nicholas Cleobury brings firsts to Kent’s favourite festival: The Joe Stilgoe Trio will guarantee fun and frivolity; A Day in Paris features some of the greatest French music of the 20th century to Hythe; the whole Marsh community is invited to take part in the world premiere of a Community Oratorio, The Sky Engine; Craig Ogden (guitarist) performs in the intimate St Clement’s, Old Romney; and we mark the 50th anniversary of Nöel Coward’s death with an afternoon with Coward’s biographer, Oliver Soden.
Changeling Theatre opens the festival bringing productions of Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost and Sheridan’s School for a Scandal. Then expect event after stimulating event to come hot on each other’s heels including: the Sacconi Quartet with former Festival Curator, Anna Tilbrook; exhibitions include photography from Wendy Carrig and mixed media art by France Tetreault; The University of Delaware Chorale, one of the best choirs from the USA; the music of Max Jaffa, performed by Simon Blendis; and London Mozart Players performing works by Barber, Vaughan-Williams and Tippett. Full details to be announced soon.
Come and be part of something truly amazing.
Nicholas Cleobury appointed Festival Curator of JAM on the Marsh for the 2023 and ’24 seasons.
