Around 3000 people are expected to attend the return of one of the towns favourite music festivals this July. Hosted at The Marlborough Science Academy and now in its 8th year, the M Festival has raised over £45,000 for the school since it started in 2010. The Festival has built up a reputation of showcasing some great local talent and this year is certainly no exception with the addition of a brand new second stage.

Festival revellers will enjoy live music from local bands including; Billington & Quinn, The Ska Faces, Alexis Kings, Magicians Nephew, Charly G, The Monster Hits, Late Day Breakers, Concrete Caverns and Electric Umbrella, as well as the best of the musical talent from students at Marlborough and other local primary schools.

As well as some great live music, the day will see lots of activities for the family to enjoy, including zorbing, face painting, bouncy castles, henna tattoos, hair braiding, jousting, bungee run, a caricaturist, balloon modelling, mini-pamper treatments and a kids zone. Art and craft workshops will also be running throughout the day!

There are plenty of food and drink options too with a BBQ using fresh meat sourced locally, homemade vegetarian & ethnic foods, chicken & chips, smoothies/shakes, ice creams, sweet & savoury pancakes, beer, cider and PIMMS tents and a cake/tuck shop to name but a few.

The Festival is open to everyone in the community and gates open at 2:30pm on July 15th with live music from 3pm and our headliners on stage at 9:30pm. The festival goes out with a bang at 11:00pm with a fireworks finale!
