The Acoustic Festival of Britain Header

This precious ‘cozy event highlights the best in rising musicians amongst the wealth of well-
travelled and respected folk, rock, reggae, blues and country acts of yesteryear, see acts
such as Whitesnake founder and axe man, anthemic songwriter Bernie Marsden and his All
Star band on Saturday evening plus songwriter Chris Difford of Squeeze, following the
Friday headline act RnB worldwide chart topper Eagle Eye Cherry, who is playing a rare UK
festival date. Then Sunday sees Scottish footstompin rockers Big Country bringing the
weekend to a close with a very rare un-plugged appearance at 8pm, following an afternoon
of dance with Grammy winning Ska and 2 tone collective of King Hammond and his Ska
Mafia .
With an already envious pedigree of musicians the festival has also spread into the
comedy world with a comfortable 200 capacity tent, each afternoon dedicated to all that is ‘
witty and comedic, a budding ‘ Victoria Wood one minute then a stand up giggle the next
act. In the evening the tent switches into the Blues Tent, featuring great acts such as
award winning Kyla Brox and Trevor Babajack Steger until a sensible midnight curfew. The
huge 200ft long real ale marquee acts as the 2 nd stage, a more intimate low lying venue
featuring 6 acts daily, with the likes of 3Daft Monkeys, Gaz Brookfield, Gordon Haskell, and
gritty blues from the USA from Swamp Candy and an unplugged performance from
Fleetwood Bac. Whist other features adult music and dance workshops throughout the day,
then 4 upcoming youthful acts each evening, finishing off with the danceable Latin Salsa 9
piece Swanvesta Social Club .

One of the easiest festivals to be at for camping, no long treks from camp to arena. You can park next to your tent, as well as flushing WC's, FREE hot showers. Electric Hook Ups available for caravans/campers.
