TV Funnyman Mark Benton Supports BLOODSTOCK Heavy Metal Festival

Mark Benton, one of British televisions most loved characters, famed for starring roles in "Booze Cruise", "Northern Lights" and most recently the brilliantly funny Nationwide Building Society adverts, regularly attends the annual Derby, U.K.-based Bloodstock metal festival.

"I've been to Bloodstock now for the past three years and it is such a great festival for lovers of everything heavy," he said. "A great mixture of styles which are getting more diverse every year. A brilliant atmosphere and very friendly. Let's hope that the festivals go from strength to strength as there's nowhere else you can see so many young bands in the space of two days. Bloodstock rocks!"

Bloodstock indoor festival takes place at the Derby Assembly Rooms on September 29-30 September. Scheduled to appear this year are PRIMAL FEAR, AXEL RUDI PELL, MY DYING BRIDE and ONSLAUGHT, among many others.
