Breaking News – Jukes & Simpsons served at JAM on the Marsh

A wonderful message from JAM on the Marsh

In a new partnership, Simpsons wines (Simpsons link) will be served at the opening and closing events of this year’s multi-arts festival, JAM on the Marsh.  Jukes Cordialities (Jukes link) will also be served as a delicious and inclusive alternative. Jukes has recently been awarded the Best Alcohol-Free Drinks Range in the 2024 World Alcohol-Free Awards.  Simpsons, Jukes, and JAM on the Marsh all share a passion for quality and world-class experiences, so this is a very natural harmony between first-class drinks and the arts.

From 4-14 JulyJAM on the Marsh returns to Kent’s Romney Marsh for its 11th festival with a stunning array of outstanding international and local artists, lighting up the Kent coast with music, theatre, 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 famous open-air Changeling Theatre performing Shakespeare and Noel Coward; the festival debut of internationally-renowned tenor Mark Padmore and Stephen Layton conductor; Canterbury Cathedral Choir with London Mozart Players performing Fauré’s ever-popular Requiem; Festival Orchestra performing 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.

Alongside music, theatre, and film, JAM on the Marsh will champion fabulous artists exhibiting wave-created cyanotypes, printmaking, large-scale watercolours, and abstract textured oils, which will be on display daily at festival venues.

JAM on the Marsh is 37 minutes from London’s St Pancras, and the festival shuttle bus goes from Ashford International station to the venues. With Ashford as its shuttle hub, JAM on the Marsh is also easily accessible by train from Kent and Sussex. Experience the unique Marsh landscape, pubs and coastline, and festival events an hour from your home.
