JAM on the Marsh

4 July 2024 to 14 July 2024 Locations across Romney Marsh, Kent

Only an hour from London, JAM on the Marsh returns to Kent’s Romney Marsh for its 11th festival.

It brings a stunning array of outstanding international and local artists, lighting up the Kent coast with music, theatre, poetry, film and art. The festival unfolds in a variety of locations; from the famous mediaeval churches to local gardens and steam railway carriages; bringing the arts to unexpected places.

The unmissable programme of sensational events includes Kent’s irreverent outdoor Changeling Theatre performing Shakespeare and Noel Coward, the festival debut of internationally-renowned tenor Mark Padmore and conductor Stephen Layton, three orchestral performances by the London Mozart Players, Canterbury Cathedral Choir performing Fauré’s ever-popular Requiem and Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending; Classic FM’s second favourite piece of all time.

The festival dedicates a day to the late, great Derek Jarman: the one-man play Jarman, the film War Requiem and visits to his Dungeness home, Prospect Cottage, pay homage to the former Marsh resident. Don’t miss the festival screening of the original Railway Children, by the Marsh’s E Nesbit.

JAM on the Marsh will champion artists exhibiting works from wave-created cyanotypes, print-making, large-scale watercolours to abstract textured oils depicting the Marsh, on display and on sale, all day, every day, in festival performance venues.
