It’s only a number of weeks until Marvellous Festival descends on the beautiful Dinton Pastures Country Park.  And, If you haven’t got your tickets yet, they are selling fast, so be quick!
After relocating there from Wellington Country Park last year, the new venue gives festival goers plenty more space all round – with a much larger provision for camping and glamping too. In fact, the glamping park is almost twice the size it was at Welly due to its popularity! Who says camping has to be all mud and wellies!  Sandals and showers for us please if you don’t mind 🙂

This year, Marvellous Festival takes place on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th July  and all of the acts taking to the main stage over the course of the weekend are world class tributes to some of the greatest artistes and bands of our time.  With a stunning line up of some 14 acts on the main stage, featuring the music  Queen, Adele, Motown, Coldplay, Elton John, Madness, Phil Collins, Fleetwood Mac, James Brown, Abba, Foo Fighters, Take That, The Beatles & Bryan Adams.

As usual, there will be tons of activities to keep the whole family occupied.  With usual favourites: The Big Kids’ Village, fairground rides, face painting, dance workshops, bouncy castles, obstacle courses, full bar facilities and lots of  fabulous food stalls.  This year, family favourites, Happy’s Circus will be putting up their Big Top and entertaining Festival-goers throughout the festival too!
