ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! IT'S BASICALLY GLASTONBURY ON A MUCH SMALLER SCALE!!! PLENTY OF BANDS TO GO SEE BEFORE THEY BECOME FAMOUS, IF THEY DO!!!
The M festival is a legend in the making and in years to come, people will ask if you were there at the beginning... Make sure you can say yes.
Great bands, a wonderful, friendly atmosphere. The best day and night out Saint Albans has to offer. The positive energy from the whole event is catching. Would recommend to anyone and everyone. All topped off with fireworks!
A fantastic, inclusive, family event where there is something for everyone to enjoy. Fantastic organisation, bands, food and drink and such a happy atmosphere!
A well-organised family event with a real festival atmosphere and a safe environment for pre-teens to experience their first festival. Highly recommend M-Festival.
What a brilliant family day with great bands, variety of food & drink and loads of activities for the children. We'll certainly be returning next year!
Bands ROCKED! Food ROCKED! People ROCKED! Thank you, once again, for a fabulous festival and more wonderful memories.
M Festival has the music and atmosphere of any outdoor music event in London - no different to Hyde Park!!
Fantastic, well organised, safe, family friendly event with a really calm, happy, vibe.
The fact that Marlborough school puts on a music festival for the community, rather than just a summer fair, makes it stand apart from the other schools in the area for all the right reasons. The festival highlights quite how much kids are capable of when they are supported to see themselves as more than simply the sum of their academic achievements.
Fun for all the family. A great time had by all of us - aged 9, 13, 16, 40 and 41!! Excellent day, and a brilliant advert for Marlborough school.
It just keeps getting better and better each year. It is the local annual sought out musical event of the area.

Back in 2009 a small group of parents and staff from The Marlborough Science Academy came together to build on the idea of hosting a music festival as a PTA fundraising event. With a small stage and audience and just a handful of performers, the festival just about broke even.
11 years later and the very same team with the help of further volunteers have established M Festival as a fantastic annual event that has now raised in excess of £100,000 for the school and other local causes. Things have changed slightly since 2010 and with 2 large outdoor stages, better sound, more entertainment, lighting, pyrotechnics, activities, food & drink and a firework finale, M Festival has come along way and now attracts over 3500 people. annually
We hope to see you on Saturday 4th July 2020 to make our 11th M Festival!
