Back in 2009 a small group of parents and staff from The Marlborough Science Academy came together to build on the idea of hosting a music festival as a PTA fundraising event. With a small stage and audience and just a handful of performers, the festival just about broke even.
11 years later and the very same team with the help of further volunteers have established M Festival as a fantastic annual event that has now raised in excess of £100,000 for the school and other local causes. Things have changed slightly since 2010 and with 2 large outdoor stages, better sound, more entertainment, lighting, pyrotechnics, activities, food & drink and a firework finale, M Festival has come along way and now attracts over 3500 people annually.
In 2020, our festival was due to take place on Saturday 4th July, however due to the COVID-19 pandemic and like all other music events, we were forced to cancel the festival. Our team had the opportunity to take a step-back and look at how we best move the festival forward for 2021 and have introduced a number of changes to ensure a successful festival for all.
In 2021, our festival was due to take place on Saturday 3rd July, however due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and continuous tier restrictions and local lockdowns, our team met virtually and agreed the safest way forward to protect our festival was to postpone for a further year. The team are excited to bring you our biggest festival yet in 2022 with an amazing line up planned and a fantastic event for everyone to enjoy!
We hope to see you on Saturday 2nd July 2022 to make our 11th M Festival!7 reviews, 15 gigs
