Alresford Music Festival (AMF) is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a huge party in the park and is only two minutes stroll from the Watercress Line. AMF is a chilled, creative family friendly festival. A fantastic line up of musicians will perform throughout the day culminating in a celebration on stage at the end of the night.

The dedicated Family Arena provides space and freedom for kids of all ages to try out the FREE activities and many music and art workshops. There is a packed festival village, with a wide choice of tasty local and international food, a fine ale bar, wine and cocktail bar and a traditional cider bar. Camping is available on both Friday and Saturday nights, so you donít have to miss a second. The campsite is walking distance to the festival, town centre and Watercress Line. 

The Watercress Line isn't just about travelling on steam trains, hop on and off throughout the day and join in with many family friendly activities. Thereís plenty to see and do at each station; including a visit to the footbridge used in Harry Potter films, learn how steam engines work and explore the locomotive yard. A great day out come rain or shine! For this weekend only, we will have LIVE music performances at Alresford Station:
