Marshfest family festival

12 noon until late

Marsh Blues Club in association with The Welcome Centre and We Shall Overcome proudly presents “Marshfest 2018” Annual charity music festival for the Welcome Centre

Marshfest aiming to be bigger and better this year

This family friendly festival and music event is held within the stunning grounds of the Ukraine Club, Huddersfield and brings together a plethora of local music and performing art talents to perform, with all proceeds donated to the Welcome Centre, Huddersfield. Last year the event raised over £5000, to help the Welcome Centre provide a range of supportive services including a food bank  and advice to individuals and families in the area suffering with poverty and in financial crisis. Every single penny counts and is put to great use, to assist people in getting back on their feet.
