MantonFest is back – 21 August this year, subject (of course) to pandemic and lockdown considerations.
“We are sorry that the original date was not possible – it was just too much of a risk given the Government timetable and could open us to large contractual losses rather than making money for good causes. ” said organiser Roger Grant.
But the line-up will be as planned, very similar to the 2020 MantonFest that had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
Performing will be Dirty Harry (number one Blondie tribute), Dr Feelgood, Ex-Men (five members of original 60’s &70’s bands), (our own) Barrelhouse, by popular demand Jo Martin with his band, Richard Davies and The Dissidents, Josie and the Outlaw and Manton’s very own Skedaddle.
“It will be a great family day out” said Roger, whilst not going quite so far as to give us a weather forecast. “MantonFest will be fun, relaxed, wonderful music and a great place to catch up with friends” he added.
“We will be guided by Government and Public Health advice” he confirmed, adding “To make it a safe a day for everyone as possible, and depending on guidance and rules in place across this period we may have to introduce some anti-covid restrictions. These will be announced nearer the time and will be in line with the latest developments and best practice”.
Entry will be £30 for adults, £10 for teenagers 12 to 15 years and £5 for 7 to 11 years. A t the moment tickets can only be brought online. Tickets bought in 2020 are valid for 2021.
Tickets will be restricted in numbers this year to allow social distancing.
