Marsden Jazz Festival

Marsden Jazz Festival (now in its 27th year) is recognised as being one of the UK’s longest-established jazz festivals. This year sees a packed programme that will see over 800 performers, 250 of which will be young musicians.

Highlights across the festival's 26 venues include Jazz FM’s vocalist of the year Polly Gibbons; Sardinia’s Mal Bigatto Trio; Dee Byrne’s Entropi; four-time British Jazz Awards winner, Enrico Tomasso; SAWA, a trio led by British-Iraqi composer Alya Al-Sultani; SK2 Orchestra
featuring trumpeter Simon Gardner; Swiss-based band, The Great Harry Hillman; and maverick pianists, Matthew Bourne and Keith Tippett. Jonny Mansfield, the 2018 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Award winner and Shepley resident, will also be leading his 11-piece band, Elftet, onto the festival’s headline stage, the 19th Century Mechanics Hall, to perform a specially commissioned pieced based on the work of Marsden-born playwright and poet, Simon Armitage.
