The London Mozart Players, under Michael Bawtree, are a regular JAM on the Marsh highlight. This year they are joined by one of the UK’s finest tenors, James Gilchrist, and Ben Goldscheider, Concerto Finalist in the 2016 BBC Young Musician Competition. This programme includes a world premiere by Cecilia McDowell, celebrating her 70th birthday, and a piece by New Romney composer, Peter Aviss. This event has been achieved in partnership with Orchestra’s Live.
St Nicholas Church
New Romney was once a thriving port, with the harbour adjacent to St Nicholas' Church, in front of which a mooring ring can still be seen. In 1287 a storm changed the coastline dramatically and the port was destroyed, the town now being more than a mile from the sea. Four feet of silt were deposited inside the Church and around, which accounts for it being lower than the surrounding area. Large numbers of visitors come annually, attracted by the unique history and architecture; the church is one of the finest in the Diocese of Canterbury.
