JAM on the Marsh spans Romney Marsh from July 5-15, including seven concerts, five exhibitions, four children’s events, two theatrical performances, three poetry recitals and a churches tour. There’s something for everyone.
The name JAM stands for John Armitage Memorial and was set up in 2000 in memory of advertising executive and trumpeter John Armitage, who wanted to promote little-known composers and musicians and introduce them to record companies and radio stations. JAM’s multi-arts festival began on Romney Marsh in 2013 and this year’s programme is as wide-ranging as ever.
Changeling Theatre’s acclaimed, open-air production of Noel Coward’s comedy classic Blithe Spirit comes to New Romney’s Old School Garden, telling the tale of celebrated novelist Charles Condomine, who invites local medium and eccentric Madame Arcati to conduct a séance – but the scheme backfires.
Blithe Spirit is one of Coward’s most enduring comedies, and is Changeling’s second open air Coward, the previous being the hugely popular Hay Fever in 2015.
Bring a chair, a rug and watch this wonderful play under the vast Marsh sky. (In the event of bad weather, the performance will take place in St Nicholas Church.)
Date and time: July 5 at 7:30pm-10:30pm
Venue: The Old School, Church Lane, New Romney, Kent TN28 8ER
