21st July 2018 - 22nd July 2018
Marvellous 2018, the family-friendly music festival is set to take place over the weekend of July 21-22 at Dinton Pastures Country Park, Hurst. Now well established in its new home, this year’s festival promises no fewer than three stages providing a huge variety of entertainment for all ages.
The giant dome of the main stage plays host to 15 world-class tribute acts while the Wokingham Music Club stage features a plethora of unsigned local talent, and finally the new RoofTop stage will have a more acoustic twist. Marvellous is well-known for serving up an eclectic mix of musical genres and eras, and this year you will be right royally entertained by tributes to Coldplay, Bob Marley, Bruno Mars, T. Rex, Santana, Pink, Led Zeppelin, Tina Turner, The Eagles, Tom Jones, The Killers, Simon & Garfunkel . . . and more!
Beginning its life in 2003, Marvellous was the first festival of its kind and, to this day, remains the biggest and best. It is fiercely proud of its reputation,
offering families the opportunity to experience a full-on festival atmosphere in a safe and friendly environment. What’s not to like!
Kids of all ages will find plenty to do with fabulous fairground rides on tap plus loads of free activities in the Big Kids’ Village – including balloon modelling, arts and crafts, games and face-painting.
Another first for 2018 is the Silent Disco tent where dancers wear headphones and can switch between two channels of music being transmitted wirelessly to them by the DJ – great fun to do and to watch! A nominal admission fee allows you ‘come & go’ access to this fantastic facility – a treat not to be missed!
Although day tickets are of course available, to get the most out of Marvellous you really owe it to yourself to do the whole weekend ‘under canvas’. If you’d rather not go to the lengths of bringing and pitching your own tent, you can spoil yourselves by taking advantage of one of a number of ‘Glamping’ packages.
Everyone purchasing tickets for the festival will be entered into a prize draw, with one lucky customer each day winning back the entire value of their order. Winners will be presented with their cash on stage in front of the whole crowd . . . 15 seconds of fame!
