Marlborough Music Festival

article 01 main gray smith

A great chorus of disappointment sounded over Marlborough when the town learned that there would be no Jazz Festival in 2017. Not content to sit around moaning, the town's more enterprising pubs and individuals got together and arranged a full weekend of live music spread across 7 venues on 14th, 15th and 16th July. Entertainment includes a special presentation of Hangover Music at the Lamb Inn on the Sunday morning for those of you who have enjoyed yourselves thoroughly.  

Admission will be free at all events.  Among the bands playing will be Son of David, Toxic, Jack Moore and other foot-stompers.  At the same time there will be mini Jazz Festival in the Town Hall and details can be found www.marlboroughjazz.com.  Townsite will be supporting both events with listings of performances and details at all venues in the coming weeks.  Watch this space.
