We are grateful, as always to all our backers, for help in putting on this celebration weekend that brings much needed funds to our small rural community. Please do your bit by buying local, giving generously to our raffle and donations collectors and perusing our snazzy merchandise in the Festival shop – pinnies a speciality...

Thank you for coming to the Festival we hope you enjoy yourselves and we’ll see you all again next year.


Camping & Accommodation



Festival Camping is available – right by the venues. However please be aware that our festival is set in the heart of the village so please respect our hard working locals with your consideration:

  • The building of fires is prohibited.
  • Please dispose of your rubbish in the containers provided and leave your pitch clear.
  • No amplified or loud music on the campsite.

We would be grateful if you would avoid parking and sleeping in camper vans in either the village car park or streets – we do receive complaints from village residents about this, and their support is crucial to the festival.

Our camp site is supervised and we have a free friendly tractor tow on hand on Sunday

if needed. Limited camper van parking also available in the lane next to the school after 6pm on Friday but please vacate before 4pm on Sunday.
