Linton Festival 2019

Dates for your diary!
We are pleased to confirm the next festival will take place on July 5th, 6th & 7th 2019.
The music team are working hard on the line-up and we’ll make an announcement as soon as we can, so keep an eye out for news…..


Linton Festival enjoyed great success this year – we had amazing weather, fantastic bands, plenty of beer and cider on tap, not to mention scrumptious food stalls. However, we would not be able to hold the festival without the much-appreciated support from our regular and newbie festival goers, sponsors, volunteers and local villagers, all of whom contributed to what was a fabulous weekend in Linton – so a massive thank you to you all!

Special thanks go to the Alma Inn for allowing us to use their facilities and providing the beer tent (and fish and chips), and to the landowners for granting access to the festival site and allowing car parking and camping on the fields around Linton.

We are delighted to announce that this year, our six nominated local charities have benefited from a whopping £8,800 in sponsorship and donations raised/facilitated by the festival:

Hope Support Services – £5400 in conjunction with the Schuh Company
Hope also raised £700 in donations over the three-day event
Cystic Fibrosis – £700
Village of Linton trust (VOLT) – £350
Linton Village Hall – £1150
St Mary’s Church Linton – £300
Linton Brownies – £200

We would like to extend a BIG thank you to our sponsors for their generous support which allowed us to make these charitable donations:

Moat Contracting
Westons, Cider Makers
Bristol Beer Factory
Garden Tractors Spares
Reds Hair Salon
Okells Francis Law
Kirkham Pryer, Chartered Building Surveyors

In Memory Of Another Loyal Supporter

We’re deeply saddened to report that 2017 will be the first Linton Festival without Nick Bertenshaw who died unexpectedly at the end of last year. His big personality, contagious humour, wacky dancing, mad hats and leather tankard will be greatly missed by all of us that had the pleasure of knowing him.

Basic but well-organised camping, spectacular real-ale menu, and a wide sweep across 21st-century angles on R&B, soul and blues – with indestructible 60s soul-swinger Geno Washington and his Ram Jam Band, Suzi Quatro, and acclaimed blues-rock modernists King King. The Alma inn, Linton, Ross-on-Wye

Larry Miller

A message from Derek White, bassist with the Larry Miller Band.

It’s with shock and great sadness that we are posting this statement. Recently, Larry Miller suffered a stroke and he is now undergoing an intensive rehabilitation programme. However, it’s too soon for anyone to know the full extent of Larry’s long term prognosis, but for the immediate future he is unable to perform.
Please feel free to send any messages to Larry via email or via Facebook. We will ensure they are communicated to Larry appropriately. In light of these circumstances, we would ask that you respect the privacy of both Larry and his family at this time. We will of course keep you updated of Larry’s progress.
If anyone wants to send a card to Larry Miller by post, please send it to Derek White, RTB Music Agency, 46, Brook Street, Aston Clinton, Aylesbury, Bucks HP22 5ES. I will take any post to Larry next time I visit or you can send an email to; All messages via facebook and by email will be printed and taken to Larry. Thanks to everybody for your kind words and this will help Larry get back on his feet. Derek White.
Larry is in a serious condition, he is paralysed down one side and unable to speak and will require months of rehabilitation. He played twice at Linton and everyone will remember his enthusiasm and how approachable he was. Hold him in your prayers and wish him a speedy recovery.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Larry Miller and his family and friends.
