A large programme of events is scheduled

Over 130 performers will take part in a     variety of events including workshops in - instrument training, (harmonica, guitar, ukulele  and fiddle), songwriting, voice
training, poetry, dance displays,  
singarounds and singalong sessions.
                                                          The 'F' Factor Talent Showcase' and 'Late Night Extra' music sessions will ensure 
you  are never short of something to do                                                
 

CAMPSITE
 
The grounds of the venue are made up of many sports pitches and therefore there 
is a ban on walking dogs or allowing
them to roam free.   Unlike in previous
years there will not be a dog-run on site.
The campsite is enclosed and bordered by
the lovely Stanney Woods. The woods
are 
ideal for walking dogs.
 
Toilets and showers are available inside 
the main building with portable toilets on the campsite and a number of water
points.                                               Hard standing is available for motor homes and large caravans.
 
 

FOOD

The Members' Lounge is also the place to
dine and there is no need to leave the
festival site to cater for your culinary
needs.  A good selection of real ales and
an extensive low priced food menu is
available.
