A popular charity festival is set to welcome music-lovers once again to its stages.
About 3,000 people are expected to attend the ninth annual M Festival this June, keen to enjoy a roster of local talent.
Since it started in 2010, the event has raised £65,000 for The Marlborough Science Academy and other local charities.
Hosted at the school, there will be two outdoor stages featuring Soulfish, Glitterbomb, Six Go Mad, Alexis Kings, San Blas, Hope, Phoenix O’Neill and Revellers Steel Band.
Activities on offer include a zorbing arena, funfair rides, bungee trampolines, face painting, a bouncy castle, henna tattoos, mini-pamper treatments, hair braiding, a wrecking cage, art workshops, and a kids zone.
