Music Festival, now in its 9th
year, is held in the grounds of the Alma Inn, Linton,
Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire. Twice awarded CAMRA Pub of
the Year for Herefordshire (in 2002 and 2005) and
featured in the Good Beer Guide. The grounds slope
gradually down to a purpose-built stage ensuring
everyone has an excellent view – just like a Roman
amphitheatre. A wide range of local food was available,
suitable for all tastes including a barbeque, pork
roast, charity cake and baguette stall, and a
Caribbean/vegetarian food stall. Yummie!!
A beer tent offered 20 real
ales plus lager, cider, and soft drinks. The
Festival is a non-profit making event and donations are
made to various local causes and charities.
The festival had something for
everyone. Once again the festival team are to be
congratulated for their organisation and strong band
line-up. Catering, parking, band turn-around, ticket
sales, P/A, M/C’s all ran smoothly, generating an
atmosphere of wellbeing for the event. The weather was
good and rain only disrupted the start on Saturday
afternoon. Thank you and very well done Linton!
