A new music festival is set to take place in Staffordshire.

Trentham Estate will host the first-ever Woodgate  Festival at the end of September.

It will be held in an area of the parkland which can host a crowd just short of 10,000 people.

For the last decade, the smaller lakeside amphitheatre in the gardens has staged a succession of popular tribute events.

A line-up of acts that have clocked up over 100 top 40 hits and 17 No.1 hits will perform next month.

Saturday, September 28 will see 90s girl-band B*witched headline a pop line-up with 5IVE, Atomic Kitten, Phats & Small, A1, Blazin Squad and Lolly completing the line-up.

Wet Wet Wet is the headline act on Sunday, September 29, with Nik Kershaw and The South providing the support.

"We're delighted to be headlining Woodgate Festival at the gorgeous Trentham Gardens", said Wet Wet Wet frontman Kevin Simm.

"It's going to be a special night so come along, hang out and dance to some brilliant tunes. See you in September!" added drummer Tommy Cunningham.

Wet Wet Wet will headline the second day of Woodgate next month

The Trentham Estate's Director, Alastair Budd, said: "The Woodgate Festival is our biggest scale event yet, and we can't wait to see our local audience and visitors from further afield coming to Trentham to hear 'real' bands for the first time in over a decade."
