JAM on the Marsh is a multi-arts festival based on Kent’s Romney Marsh. 4-16 July 2023
Founded in 2000, JAM (John Armitage Memorial Trust) has commissioned an immense number of works from some of the most important composer in the UK, influencing the classical music repertoire in the UK and around the world.
JAM regularly collaborates with some of the most important composers, performers and other like-minded organisations: BBC Singers, London Mozart Players, Onyx Brass and BBC Radio 3.
JAM is internationally recognised as a creative, dynamic, forward-thinking arts organisation, with new music at its core. It embraces artistic risk-taking through contemporary innovation, exploration, collaboration and creation, that intentionally integrates high-quality performances and education.
We work with leading lights in the fields of theatre, visual art, photography, poetry and education, with music still very much at the core of our festival.
JAM on the Marsh has welcomed well known and respected national and international artists, and invites audiences to engage with some of the biggest names in classical music, opera, jazz, theatre and the visual arts, all within picturesque medieval churches.
