Do you have a spare room?

Are you a local resident who would be interested in renting out a spare room, flat or even an entire home during local events and festivals such as Marsden Jazz Festival and Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival ?

Become a 'music host' and help us extend a warm, genuinely local welcome to our national and international guests and visiting artists, performers and composers by offering them a home-from-home experience.

Share insights, local knowledge and recommendations for places to eat, drink, visit and socialise during their stay and become part of the rich music culture and community in your area.

If you are interested in becoming a music host in the future during events such as Marsden Jazz Festival (12-14 October 2018) and Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival there are several ways you can get involved.
