Marsden is a large village within the Metropolitan Borough of Kirklees, in West Yorkshire, England, 7 miles (11.3 km) west of Huddersfield and located at the confluence of the River Colne and the Wessenden Brook. The village has a population of 4000. Marsden is the last significant settlement on the West Yorkshire side of Standedge crossing of the Pennines into Greater Manchester. The village is surrounded on three sides by the high moors which are called Marsden Moor and Meltham Moor. The village is host to several festivals and cultural events throughout the year. Perhaps the most notable of these is Marsden Cuckoo Day, which is a day-long festival held annually in Spring (April), with clog dancing, a duck race, music, a procession and a famous "cuckoo walk". There is also the annual Marsden Jazz Festival each October and the Imbolc festival each winter, in which the triumph of the Green Man (who represents the coming spring), over Jack Frost (the winter) is celebrated with fire juggling and giant puppets. Marsden is the home of Mikron theatre company, the worlds only professional theatre company to tour by Narrowboat. Marsden is the home of the Marsden Silver Prize Band, a top level brass band.
