Scouting for music

scouting for music

We don’t want to say it too loud, in case the secret gets out, but this September Marlborough will come alive again with the inaugural event Marlborough Rising . Aptly named, the initiative was put together following the loss of Marlborough Music Festival after 30 years of attracting visitors to the town and aims to cater for a broad range of musical tastes.

Marlborough Rising will “fill the town with music” attracting headline bands from across the globe to perform in our historic town.

The full schedule is now available here.

This event has been generously sponsored by several local businesses including David Dudley Jewellers. Book your tickets now to avoid disappointment.
