A popular music festival is returning once again to Highworth on Saturday.

Wrde Up will be held at the Recreation Ground from 2pm with live music from top talent including Madness tribute band The Los Palmas 6, local acts Bleep Machines, Mixtape and Boogie Me, and The Voice Kids star Lewis Blissett.

Lewis will be singing at 5pm, the day before his performance in the battle rounds of the singing competition is broadcast to the nation on ITV.

There will also be a performance and an interactive dance session from dancing school Danzone, a circus workshop and funfair from Danters Funfair, animals from Swindon Reptile Rescue, and a variety of stalls.

Party band Felix and the Funk will play hits and floor-fillers from a wide variety of genres to get crowds on their feet.

Highworth eateries are supplying tasty meals and snacks to the festival, including a barbecue from Andrew's Meats, pizza from the Highworth Pizzeria, cakes and sweets from Outsauce, and homemade ice cream from Manic Munchies.

Member of the festival's organising committee Stephen Peacey was looking forward to a great day out.

He said: "It's a truly eclectic festival, the event is going from strength to strength.

"Sales of our pre-sales tickets have doubled compared to last year and we have one of our most exciting line-ups, we're really excited to hear them all play.

The festival's name comes from Wrde, which was the very first recorded name for Highworth in 1086, then the town's name changed to Worth in 1094.

WrdeUp are a not for profit organisation and rely heavily on the support of the local community for funding via ticket sales and business for sponsorship.

Tickets for this year's festival cost £17 for adults, £8 for 16 and 17-year-olds and free for under-16s, with a family ticket for two adults and two under-18s available for £44
