Breathtaking beach art which changes daily will be one of the highlights of this summer's JAM on the Marsh festival.
The annual 11-day arts celebration in the heart of Romney Marsh, which runs from Thursday, July 4 to Sunday, July 14, will feature concerts, live theatre, exhibitions and live music, with many events free.
Children go free for all events, including a Children's Sunday, which will have storytelling, clowning, nature sculptures and steam trains.
Following record audiences last year, the line-up this year includes critically acclaimed King’s Singers who will make their first visit to the unique shore.
Jon Foreman’s large-scale, daily-changing beach art will be laid out for all to enjoy on the sands at Dymchurch, while Canterbury Cathedral Girls’ Choir will be joined by the Chapel Choir of Selwyn College (Cambridge) and Palmarsh and Hythe Bay primary schools in concert.
Maidstone-based Changeling Theatre will perform their racy touring production Nell Gwynn under the copper beach tree in New Romney, as part of their summer tour across the county. Orchestral music by Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, Finzi and Paul Mealor will be performed by the London Mozart Players, or visitors can hear Bach like never before with Art of MOOG’s Bach on Synths.
There will also be a series of events designed to get people joining in, including Come & Play an instrument, Come & Sing with ex BBC Singer Rebecca Lodge and Come & Sculpt the beach.
