Starting life in a drum shop in Hanwell as the brain child of Jim Marshall, the Marshall amp was designed to help create richer sound for guitarists who were unable to afford the expensive, US Fender amplifiers. With a small team of skilled musicians, Marshall produced his first amplifier in 1962. The development of the "Marshall Stack" a few years later initiated Marshall's ultimate rise to the forefront of the music instrument industry. Fifty years after Jim Marshall sold his first JTM45, four generations of guitarists and fans revere the name. Marshall Amps have defined the sound of rock and are prized by rock guitarists of every age and style. For half a century now, Jim Marshall OBE and the Marshall team have been shaping the sound of rock on stage and in the studio with artists as diverse as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Pete Townsend, Gary Moore, Eddie Van Halen, Eric Johnson, Slash, Zakk Wylde, Joe Bonamassa, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Frank Zappa, Richie Kotzen, Trivium and countless others.

Paul Marshall, Head of Artist Liaison and part of the Marshall dynasty commented; "Artists play a massive role in the company, and are very much part of the ‘Marshall Family'. Over the five decades of Marshall's history, practically every guitar hero has used Marshall, Richie Blackmore, Jeff Beck, Gary Moore, Slash, the list goes on.... This event is a celebration of the Marshall family and we are honoured so many artists want to get involved!"

Celebrating over five decades of guitar amplification, Marshall Amps have become synonymous with Rock Royalty. To celebrate the rich five-decade legacy of the brand Marshall plans a very special Golden Anniversary as it welcomes a stellar line-up of artists and presents an impressive array Marshall exhibits for what promises to a never-to-be forgotten event. Visitors at this oneday festival of sound will be met with a concentrated blast of full-on Marshall magic! The entire weekend will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in the 50-year Golden Anniversary of a beloved British icon: Marshall.
