After the success of last year's JAM on the Marsh on Kent's glorious Romney Marsh, the festival is back with an unmissable line-up.

Kicking off on 9 July, curated by world famous composer Paul Mealor, JAM on the Marsh 2015 will feature sensational concerts, a safari opera dinner, theatre, poetry recitals, beach-combing for children, stunning photography and the rare opportunity to have your dreams turned into a piece of art.

Sounds Baroque opens the festival’s music, performing Pergolessi’s achingly beautiful Stabat Mater and Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 in Snargate.

The following night at All Saints, Lydd, the world-class Chapel Choir of Selwyn College, Cambridge and Onyx Brass will perform Paul Patterson’s The Fifth Continent; a powerful work, in part sea-swirling in part so peaceful, about the Marsh. This will be joined by our Festival Commission, The Voices of Our Ancestors by internationally respected Thea Musgrave. Paul Mealor’s chart-topping hit Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal also features, with pieces by Whitacre and Lauridsen.

Daniel Cook comes to Lydd a day after playing this recital at Westminster Abbey, in their prestigious Summer Organ Festival. A few days later he returns with the Mousai Singers to perform Duruflé’s spellbinding and deeply spiritual, Requiem in a concert of English and French classics; Entente Cordiale!

The Festival Chamber Orchestra of Canterbury will join the festival for the first time, performing a treat of orchestral favourites from Bach, Mozart, Corelli, Walton and Albinoni, getting St Leonard’s, Hythe ready for the weekend.
