The Linton Festival, now in its eighth 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 features 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 excellent local food was available, suitable for all tastes including a barbeque, pork roast, charity cake and baguette stand and new for 2008 - a Caribbean food stall.

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.

This Festival had something for everyone. Once again the Festival team are to be congratulated for their organisational skills and strong band line-up. Catering, parking, camping, band turn around, ticket sales, P/A, M/Cs all ran smoothly, generating an atmosphere of wellbeing for the event. The weather was fair and rain only disrupted the last hour of Saturday night. A good time was had by all.

Thank you and well done Linton!
