If it’s mid-summer then it must be time for Thornham’s annual Music on the Field Festival.

MoF15 is on Saturday, July 18 on Thornham Playing Field with gates opening at 1pm and the music starting at 2pm. As always there is a variety of musical styles, with something likely to appeal to most musical tastes, and a strong local flavour.

Back by popular demand and starting the entertainment is the Rocking Bishop of Lynn.

Regular Thornham favourites, Laura and Sounds Easy Jazz trio, with their brand of smooth jazz classics, Blues Tubes do what it says on the title, Pennyless, the versatile folk trio from Lincolnshire, and Jimmy Rockit, who really do get the crowd rocking, all feature on the bill again.

New this year are Fried Pirates now doing a monthly residency in the Black Horse, Castle Rising, and Next Time who are keenly anticipated after strong recommendations.

Closing the show will be Harry Re-Wound, some familiar musicians in a new context.

As well as the music there is good food and drink. A real ale bar will be supported by a Pimms bar. Coriander and Lime provide Asian delicacies alongside a traditional barbecue; non-alcoholic refreshments will also be available.

To amuse the children there will be a face painter through the afternoon and the children’s play area will be available. This event has built a reputation as an excellent family outing.

Admission is £10 for adults with accompanied under 12s free; there will be free on-site car parking, good toilet facilities, full disabled access. Dogs are admitted but must be kept on leads and under control throughout.

All proceeds go to supporting Thornham Village Hall and Playing Field and for further information go to or contact Colin on 01485 512315 or Antony on 512460.
