Kick off the summer holidays in style at the annual Marvellous Festival. The ever popular tribute festival is taking place next month 20 and 21 July at Dinton Pastures Country Park in Hurst where music lovers are invited to enjoy three stages of live music across the weekend.
The line-up for the main stage features a number of popular tribute acts including; Platinum ‘The Live ABBA Tribute Show’, Bon Giovi and The Brian Adams experience, to name but a few. Attendees can also support local bands over at The Wokingham Music Club stage including; Selina & The Howlin' Dogs, Syn City Rockers, Forays and many more.
Guests are invited to enjoy fairground rides, a silent disco marquee and the big kid’s village. Plenty of tasty refreshments will be on offer with a number of food stalls and a bar. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own picnic and chairs to the festival. There is a dedicated area for camping.
For those visiting on Saturday, the glorious Fireworks Finale is making a welcome return to this year's event. The display will be launched from the island in the middle of the lake at Dinton and is sure to provide the perfect closing highlight to a wonderful day.
