Headstock Headstock


Headstock Festival was set up in 2010 by Newstead Enterprise.The non-profit, volunteer and musician led Headstock takes place at the Newstead and Annesley Country Park, near Nottingham. Headstock is part of a bigger endeavour to create a sustainable future for the village, which suffered severe deprivation after the coal mine closed in 1987. The Festival is situated in the community’s own stunning 230-acre eco-park, with the main stage sitting in a natural amphitheatre and camping available on site. Other attractions at the festival include street theatre, circus performances, DJ workshops and light installations. There’s a dedicated children’s area called Kidstock, and the Lambhorse Cabaret will be wandering around the site entertaining the crowds.
