JAM on the Marsh is an annual multi-arts festival built around Kent’s magnificent Romney Marsh and its famous medieval churches. Each year JAM on the Marsh crosses the Romney Marsh from Dungeness to Hythe and Lympne to New Romney. The Marsh churches are true beacons of culture and history; they are the heart of the festival.

The role of Curator is an important one in how JAM on the Marsh is programmed. The position of Curator can only be held by a person for two years. This ensures that the festival is ever-developing and continuously changing. Curators to date have included the internationally renowned composers, Judith Bingham and Paul Mealor and for 2017 / 18 the organist and conductor, Daniel Cook (Westminster Abbey).


JAM on the Marsh 2017 Thursday 6th – Sunday 16th July.  JAM on the Marsh 2017 will be curated by the internationally renowned organist and conductor, Daniel Cook (Westminster Abbey). Music will feature strongly with performances by BBC Singers and London Mozart Players, David Rees-Williams Trio and Mousai Singers. BBC Singers will give the world premiere of a Festival Commission commemorating the Battle of Vimy Ridge by Tom Harrold and Stuart Beatch, to words by Grahame Davies. There are art exhibitions including: John Doyle, mixed media artist, Jillian Bain Christie and photography exhibitions by: Tristan Fewings, Susan Pilcher and the students of the Marsh Academy.
