THE Retired Soldier pub at Link Top, Malvern, is holding a three-day music festival this weekend.

The event, from Friday to Sunday, includes appearances from Debbie Parry of popular duo Sax Appeal, and Jess Dixon.

Sharon Clifton, licensee of the pub in Newtown Road, said: “We are incredibly excited to be hosting such a spectacular range of music for the community to enjoy.

"This looks to be the first festival of many, with a fantastic line up planned throughout the summer.

"The barbecue will be sizzling all weekend, so come down for a bite to eat and to see some of our fantastic acts performing.”

Rachael Dixon of Admiral Taverns, which owns the pub, said: “Phil and Sharon have put so much hard work into this event and it’s great to see them pulling out all the stops to create a weekend their customers won’t forget.

"If you’re free this weekend I would definitely recommend paying the team a visit, the festival looks like a fantastic event and not one to miss.”
