Marsden Jazz Festival attracts thousands of people and hundreds of musicians each year.
With almost 100 gigs across 26 venues, organising the three-day event is no mean feat, and would not be possible without the hard work of the festival volunteers.
A dedicated team plan and run the festival each year, from the initial stages to ensuring the festival weekend run smoothly.
And you can help to keep Marsden swinging — and make sure the popular festival returns each year.
Here's how you can get involved:

The reason the festival is able to stage so many free gigs and performances across the weekend is the support it receives from donors, grants and sponsors.
You can help the festival continue (and keep it a largely free event) by making a donation.
There are two ways to contribute: Vodafone Just Text Giving and Virgin Money Giving. To find out more, or make a donation, click here for details.
The festival says sponsors are vital to the presence of the festival across Marsden each year — and there's lots of opportunities, from sponsoring venues to individual concerts and other events, merchandise including t-shirts, and festival leaflets.
The festival is supported by a host of local sponsors, including the 14th Huddersfield United Church Marsden Scouts, Marsden Fisheries, Marsden Mechanics Hall, Michael Rath Musical Instruments, Marsden Community Association and more.
