2015 Programme

Performances and events currently confirmed for this year’s Festival are listed below. As soon as further acts are booked we will update this page so please keep looking. Tickets will be on sale from this website from 8 May 2015 but you can become a Friend of the Festival and get priority booking from 1 April 2015.

 For evening events we advise you bring torches, and please note the car park is a five-minute walk from St Mary's Church with a slight gradient. The Village Hall is almost opposite the car park. The Skittle Alley is at the White Horse Inn, a short way on from the church. For comfort, you may like to bring cushions or a rug if chilly to performances in the church. People with disabilities can be dropped off in front of the church.
