If you failed to get a ticket for Glastonbury this year – don’t worry.  You can still see some of the great acts performing there in a much more relaxed and friendly atmosphere at Beverley Festival the week before. Two great American acts – Steve Forbert and Gretchen Peters, as well as leading Scottish band The Proclaimers, will all appearing on Glastonbury’s Acoustic Stage, with the England’s own award winning Oysterband appearing on its Avalon stage. All these will also be warming up on the Main Stage at Beverley the weekend before. 

The festival with its great family friendly atmosphere, at its new site on Beverley Racecourse in the heart of the beautiful East Yorkshire, and on the edge of the historic market town of Beverley, provides a relaxed and hassle free environment to enjoy the music, as well as films, comedy and the spoken word.  With camping a few strides away from the main festival performances and a safe and enclosed environment for children, and no crowds to battle thought to get to your chosen event, it provides the obvious weekend away for festival lovers.   

For the first time, theatre will be featured as a part of the weekend, with leading British playwright John Godber, having one of his award winning plays, “Bouncers” performed at the event on the Sunday night.

This year the festival has expanded its Craft and Music Fair with a wide range of stalls and food outlets to tempt all tastes, and the best of the region’s real ale from the award winning Wold Top Brewery.
