Marsden (Yorkshire) Jazz Festival This Weekend.

The annual Marsden Jazz Festival will be held in the beautiful Pennine village on October 12-14th 2012.  Described as "Montreux meets Vicar of Dibley" and "the good old days of Brecon", the village oozes jazz from every nook and cranny.  With more than 80 events scheduled over 48 hours, there really is something to suit every taste.
As well as gigs, there will be plenty of opportunities to get involved, whether you are a serious musician, or a toddler wanting to make some sounds. In addition to ticketed events Marsden Jazz Festival features many free concerts, giving festival-goers the chance to experience jazz from traditional to contemporary to experimental. This year, in 48 hours, Marsden expects to host over 8,000 visitors at 78 events in more than 20 indoor and outdoor venues.
Marsden Jazz Festival were chuffed to bits when they were awarded the Festival of the Year 2010 by Jazz Yorkshire, reflecting the high regard in which this "enormous festival in the little village" is held.
Marsden Jazz Festival is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
Marsden Jazz Festival gratefully acknowledges the support of Kirklees Council
