St Mellion Music Festical will take place on the playing field at St Mellion Primary School on 5th July between 2pm and 9pm. The event aims to be family friendly with children of all ages welcome. Music will be provided by bands from the village and surrounding area. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.


St Mellion's Festival in the Field is a charity event in aid of a much needed hall for St Mellion school and community. We are aiming to raise the necessary funds to pay for plans and costings to be drawn up which can then be used to apply for help with funding to start building.

Come and enjoy:-

As well as aiming to raise money for the school and community hall this is a community event drawing together friends and neighbours for an enjoyable afternoon and early evening. Feel free to bring your own camping chair or rug for a relaxing and entertaining time.

If we can sell 200 tickets for the festival this will enable us to get the hall plans drawn up. Please spread the word to friends, family and those who enjoy watching live music. Please help us to make this a success!

Owing to the event being held on school property, glass must not be brought into the festival field. Food and drink on sale at the event will be served in plastic containers. Dogs and smoking cannot be permitted on the school premises.


We would welcome offers of help during the day for tasks, such as, manning the car parking and entrance gates. If you could spare an hour or two please let us know.
