For the first time the festival has been extended to include a Sunday evening session, extending the Sunday session to 9pm. There will be live music throughout the day, from Dirty Martini Swing Band, Unihorn and Granny Magnet.

This year the festival, supported by Long Man Brewery, is fully undercover, with the band stage and all the bars under canvas, although there’s also an outdoor garden where festival visitors are able to see and listen to the bands.

With more real ales and ciders at this year’s festival than ever before, festival organisers are delighted to have Long Man Brewery supporting the event with sponsorship and a selection of five Long Man ales to choose from.

And as well as ale and cider, there will be a selection of wines and cocktails to enjoy.

Saturday and Sunday day time sessions are family friendly; children are welcome and will be entertained by bouncy castles and land zorbing. However, the evening sessions are for over 18s only.

All drinks must be purchased using tokens which can be bought at the festival in multiples of £10, with each token being to the value of 10 pence. All real ales and ciders will cost between £3.40 and £3.80 (34-38 tokens).
