Festival of reggae at town pub.

By ROBERT SUTCLIFFE @MRRSUTCLIFFE HUNDREDS of people are set to enjoy a special day-long, reggae-fest at The Plumbers Arms in Huddersfield town centre.

Last year the popular pub, close to Huddersfield bus station, held its first PlumFest extravaganza which was a huge success.

This year the fun starts around lunchtime on Saturday, August 24, with DJ Soul getting the party going from 2pm until it finishes at midnight.

Among the bands featured at the outdoor and indoor event will be Natural Rhythm, a ska and bluebeat outfit from Bradford who will take the floor between 5pm and 6pm.

DJ Soul will fill in again between 6pm-7pm before Huddersfield-based Trenchtown UK, a seven-piece reggae/ ska group, light up the town centre from 7pm-8pm with their collection of old and new classic floor-fillers.

DJ Soul takes over again for half an hour from 8pm-8.30pm with sevenpiece Huddersfield's finest new reggae band Love Generation completing the line-up when they perform until 10pm.

DJ Soul will take the party over the finishing line when he gets back in the groove at 10pm and continues until midnight.

Mark Robertson, who owns The Plumbers, said: "Last year we held a very successful PlumFest and this year we hope we will see hundreds of people turn up for another night to remember.

"We will be providing an outdoor bar and catering.

"This event is an absolute must for Motown and reggae lovers."
