A tribute to the much loved bands The Stone Roses and Take That have been confirmed as the headline acts for a village festival in July.

The Total Stone Roses and Take That Live Tribute Band will be at Napton Festival running on Friday, July 8 and Saturday, July 9.

There will be celebrations aplenty as it is the 10th year the festival has been running.

A spokesman for the festival said: “We promised you another spectacular festival and we think this year could top it all!

“Napton Festival was conceived in 2006 and has built on experience to put on what must be one of the best small family friendly festivals around.

The festival goes from strength to strength and has supported local causes and music in schools again over the past year.”

Tickets for the event are now on sale and the full line up has been confirmed.

There will be a bit of attitude from The Total Stone Roses on the festival’s opening night.

The band are all in their early to mid twenties, bringing the same passion, vigour, arrogance and charisma that only the young have, the old want and that cannot be faked. They play all of the best roses material including She Bangs The Drums, Fools Gold and Waterfall.

Appearing on Friday are The Ellipsis, 4th Labyrinth, Warwick Junction, Dead Frequency and Jolly Rogers

Take That LIVE Tribute Band are the headline act for the Saturday night and are as close to the real Take That as possible with their costumes, vocals, choreography and appearance.

Also appearing on Saturday is Feral Ghost, Grace Solero, Gun Hill Riffs, Rosellys, Matilda Pratt, The Rejects, Robinson Stone, The Bombardies, The Greg Coulson Band, Sophie DeBattista and The Redhills.

Organisers are expecting a sell out so people are urged to book tickets in advance.

Tickets for Friday only is £10 and Saturday only is £18. Entrance for under 14s is free. A ticket for both days of the festival costs £20.
