A World of Tradition

Transport yourself into a world of tradition with our latest line up.
The amazing multi-instrumental, punchy, mega band, Brass Monkey are amongst some of finest artists headlining our festival over the late Spring Bank Holiday this year. Celebrating their 35 years of performing, we can guarantee an exciting performance from this extraordinary  group.
Martin Carthy, John Kirkpatrick, Martin Brinsford, Roger Williams and Paul Archibald are playing for just one concert in our Big Top Tent on the Monday early evening, Event tickets will also be available for this event during May.

Mellifluous is certainly what you could associate with Coope, Boyes and Simpson but what you get with the beautifully smooth singing is real punch with the songs content. Jim, Barry and Lester are masters of extraordinary songs which have been known to bring audiences to tears of joy whilst ripping your heart out in a moment. Their musicallity is second to none and you can see them at the festival on the Sunday.

Talking of musicality, lets talk about Mick Ryan.
Mick has been at the centre of many fine folk theatre productions including "Tolpuddle", "A Days Work", "The Voyage", "The Navvies Wife" and now, his latest blockbuster, "The Pauper's Path to Hope".
Mick has gathered together some of the finest from the folk world - Maggie Boyle, Paul Downes, Judy Dunlop, Roy Clinging, Heather Bradford and Phoebe Kirrage. Members of the wonderful Thoresby Colliery Brass Band complete the line up. A superb show, riding along to much critical acclaim, will be in our Big Top tent on the early Saturday Evening. Event tickets for this show will be available in May.
