Entertainment Programme

Included in our admission prices is a full programme of entertainment* to suit all tastes; the full Festival line up will be announced shortly and will include something for most tastes ranging from bands to folk singers, choirs to solo musicans.

We’re building a Sound Stage in Charter Square where performers will entertain; a ‘Jam’ session (Wednesday), a ‘Battle of the Bands’ (Thursday) – in conjunction with local summer music festival ‘Bardfest’-, Booty & The Beatz (Friday) and The Sound Collective (Saturday afternoon). The fabulous Rythim Rockits retro band are booked for Saturdays party nite. Folk Music and other acoustic entertainment will return to our ‘Top Shelf’ lounge in The Apex following last years’ popularity.

We have some slots available where we are encouraging community groups – Choirs, Musicians, Singers, Actors and Entertainers – to join us and perform to help raise money for our charities and good causes. If your group would like to perform or you would like to perform at the Jam session please contact us click here

On Saturday afternoon we have a family session when Under 16’s will be admitted FREE (when accompanied by a parent or guardian); We’ve organised 3 sessions of supervised children’s entertainment (disco, bubble fun, games & balloon modelling) for Ages 4 – 12 which will be provided by ‘Charlie Cheesecake’ so parents can relax, enjoy the entertainment and a drink (or two!) while we keep the little ones amused! click here to register your children for a FREE space.

And for those with a love for beer we’ve lined up Masterclasses, ‘Meet the Brewer’ & ‘Meet the Maltster’ sessions. Renown beer aficionado and critic, Roger Protz, will be hosting two FREE sessions and several festival Brewers and a Maltster will be hosting FREE presentations. click here to register now.
