A MUSIC festival with a difference will be held in Malton this summer.

Meadowfest aims to combine Malton’s food credentials with some of Yorkshire’s finest musicians.

Set in the garden of The Talbot hotel, the family-friendly event will take place on Saturday, July 20, from 10am to 10pm, and will be headlined by Levi Roots and his Reggae Band.

Levi will be supported by local talent, including Beth McCarthy, Flat Cap Carnival, Grand Old Uke of York, Tengu Taiko Drummers, Up Beat Brass, Marc Atkinson and King Courgette – promising festival-goers an eclectic mix of ska, reggae, funk, blues and more.

Meadowfest will aim to offer entertainment for all the family and feature some of the region’s best street food stands, including vegan and vegetarian options, arts and children’s entertainment and a festival bar serving cocktails, Prosecco, craft beers and more.

Tom Naylor-Leyland, festival director, said: “Visitors to Malton love our popular programme of events which, as a result, has grown vastly over recent years, building on our annual food lovers festival, monthly food markets and harvest food festival to include Marathon du Malton and Street Food Sundays.

“We know from the success of our annual food lovers festival that visitors to Malton love to get their dancing shoes on – with our 2017 festival seeing hundreds of music lovers dancing in the streets to Levi Roots and his Reggae Band.

“Therefore, it was only right that our dear friend Levi should make a return to launch Meadowfest, our first dedicated music festival, which aims to be one of the UK’s best boutique music festivals.”

Tickets are £20 for adults (early bird) or £25 after the early bird promotion has ended.

Children under 16 go free.

Tickets include free parking, access to the main stage and the Hay Bale stage, street food court and campfire, arts area, children’s play area and The Talbot terrace area.
