Beach art at Dymchurch, live music and theatre all part of JAM on the Marsh 2019

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.
