"Mantonfest 2018. Just fantastic. Great music, great food/beer, great friends and to top it off, amazing weather. Thank you and massive respect to Stuart Whant, Roger Grant, Becky Banning and the rest of the Manton organisers for a superb event."

"Such an amazing day and evening; an enormous thank you to the whole of the MantonFest team who have you on your incredible hard work in putting together this fabulous fun event. We look forward to enjoying it all over again next year "


I don’t think there is anywhere on earth where you pay £20, have 11 (ish +) hrs of awesome live music, where it’s child friendly, dog friendly, you don’t get frisked for taking your own food/drink, have massively talented bands and just the perfect atmosphere.


"If you missed this, then on your own foolish head (there’s always next year)"


"Well done everyone who had anything to do with Mantonfest"

"Utterly brilliant day out"

"I think everyone has covered it !! What a fabulous fabulous fest !! Marvellous Mantonfest for those that find it difficult to stand for hours or financially simply cannot afford big ticket prices plus buying water food as you can’t take it in & miss out on concerts & the buzz & inner lift live music has the ability to do .. you’ve not just created a festival you’ve created life moments unforgettable ones .. please keep it going it’s very special .. what a way to round off June with a bit of Katrina in the heat waves !! Everyone was walking on sunshine & yes it did feel good !! "

"Genuinely can not wait for next year. Fantastic, great value day out, whoever came up with this idea is a genius and needs a knighthood (or local equivalent)"

"Great day thanks to all the organisers for all your hard work. This is our fourth year and each one gets better. Well done looking forward to next year already."

"First time at Mantonfest amazing day great choice of food and drink (not over priced) young and older having a great time as for the music excellent, Katrina really rocking it , swinging blue jeans brought back good memories.
