A FEAST of musical talent will be on show at a popular food festival.
As well as demonstrations from celebrity chefs and a variety of food stalls, musicians to suit all tastes will perform at Mold Food and Drink Festival.
Performers who have performed in the past, as well as new artists, will be on the menu at the festival, which will take place on Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September 22.
The line-up has been organised by 17-year-old Robert Davies, from Mold, who joined the organising committee last year.
The Mold Alun School A-level student said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed organising the stage line up while completing my AS’s.
“I have focused on enticing popular local bands to the festival with the aim of giving them the opportunity to raise their profile and bring with them a large following, which will increase our numbers too.
“I’ve tried to ensure there is a good mix with everything from rock, pop, and Motown to folk, blues and country music.
“I hope everyone enjoys it.”
Robert has worked in a voluntary capacity on various local community event organising committees, including Mold Spring Clean and Mold Carnival.
He has booked a number of artists playing for the first time at the festival, including Rebel and the Chief, Backbeat, Okkams Razor, 50 Hertz, The Storyville Mob, The T.T.B, Pentenyn and Click 22.
A number of regulars will also be performing, including The Breaks, Espionage, Defy All Reason and Urban Cut.
Urban Cut band member Neil Culff says: “We had a fantastic time playing at the festival last year. It’s great to perform at such a high profile, local gig and we’re delighted to have been asked to come back – the atmosphere there is just brilliant.”
Mold Town Band will play for the opening of the festival on the Saturday and Northop Youth Band will perform on the Sunday morning.
John Les Tomos, festival chairman said: “Rob has done a great job in sourcing some excellent bands and I’d like to thank him for all his hard work.
“The live music is now one of the key features of the festival and really adds to the ambience.
“Everything is looking spot on for the weekend.”
The festival will take place from 10am to 5pm, with outdoor entertainment continuing until 8pm on Saturday. Tickets cost £5 for adults, £2 for children aged three to 12, and £10 for a family of two adults and two children.
