Napton Festival will return with an all new look and Abba tribute band when it returns to the village this summer.

Organisers of the annual festival have announced an all-new line up for 2015, with tickets now on sale.

The festival, to be held in the village on July 10 and 11, will see 18 bands take to the stage over two nights

Events run from 5pm to 11pm on Friday, and from midday to 11pm on Saturday - with a change to the usual headline band from rock to tribute band - Abba Chique.

Organisers for the weekend said: “We think the change will be great for the festival and give it a more wide appeal to end the Saturday.

“The past few years have been hugely successful and the charity has set up a local grant scheme to help schools and musicians with funding.”

Performers will include Yes Sunshine, The Session and Kristy Gallacher, Jessica Rhodes, The Occasional Orchestra and Nina Baker.

The Jellyheads, who have supported the festival since the early days, will return with punk classics on Friday night in what is hoped will entertain families and regular festival-goers.

Weekend camping is available. Tickets now available for £18 or £10.

Under 12s go free. Camping is £7 per night per person and includes security. Visit naptonfestival for full details and tickets.
