We are super, SUPER excited to announce that we have indie-folk legend Matt Owens starring in our afternoon line-up!
Matt was a founder member of Noah and the Whale, and enjoyed massive success; including multiple appearances at Glastonbury, a sell-out concert in the Albert Hall, and live TV appearances on “Later… with Jools Holland”, and “ The David Letterman show”, to name but a few.
In the past few months, Matt released his debut album “Whiskey and Orchids” to critical acclaim, and has widely featured on the 6 Music Playlist, as well as making many live appearances up and down the country.

We are so thrilled that Matt can take time out from promoting the album to feature at Marshfest in our early afternoon line up. Don’t be late!
MarshFest promises fun for all the family. Our children’s entertainment line up includes Balthazar’s Bubbles, amazing feats of bubblecraft with the chance for kids to try their hand at creating giant bubbles themselves; Chuffy the ride-on train who will once again offer fun-filled tours around the site and the ever-popular Circus Tent, where anyone can learn how to walk on stilts, juggle colourful scarves or master the diabolo amongst other things.
Bath’s award-winning The Makery will be back with their brilliantly popular hands-on craft tent, offering family-friendly projects such as festival headbands and colourful wands to complete on the day. The Wiltshire Bee Centre will be back giving everyone the chance to see live bees busying themselves in the Observation Hive – fascinating to see them at work safely behind glass. And their bumbly mascot will be buzzing around the site offering bee selfies (belfies?!) Don’t miss our brilliant face painter who will transform children into a creature of their choice, be it unicorn or superhero. Or why not take a wistful wander through the magical, mystical enchanted forest and see what you’ll discover.
And when you’re ready for a bite to eat there are plenty of options including stone-bake pizzas; a choice of noodles from our noodle bar, snacks and drinks from our tuck shop and burgers from our barbecue. Take a look at our Food and Drink section for full details.
We’ve chosen food to suit all taste buds for MarshFest, from Wood-fired pizzas to hearty Mexican and from tasty noodles to barbeque classics, it’s all available on the day. There’ll be good coffee and cake as well as Marshfield’s finest Ice Cream, churned just a few fields away.
Jenna’s delicious pizzas were a big hit last year, and they are back again for MarshFest 2019. Pizza Folk use the freshest ingredients to make delicious sourdough pizzas baked to order.

Marshfest is not a profit organisation- every last penny of money earned goes back to our charities, and we’re always looking at ways to save money. We rely heavily on the help and support that is offered by our beautiful volunteers. We simply couldn’t do what we do without them.
If you would like to be part of the MarshFest buzz, we’d love to have your help to make it happen, whether that be scanning tickets on the door, setting up, or ripping down the site- we’d love you onboard
Please do get in touch if you have an hour or more to spare on or around the 7th September. Just drop us a line on our contact page https://marshfest.co,uk/contact thanks so much!
Marshfest is a not for-profit organisation. Every last penny of money made goes back to our charities. We don’t carry any cash over to the next year so every year we have to work from scratch – at not inconsiderable risk to our credit cards!
Apart from making sure you have the tickets before they sell out, buying online gives us that much needed cash flow. The more we have in the coffers before the event, the more we can give to charity and also ensure we can deliver the quality event that you expect.
We have a well tested wet weather plan, so rain or shine – we’re on!
So please, if you know you’re coming, please book now! https://marshfest.co.uk/shop
