Oh and yes, as the name suggests, the festival is, as always, FREE ENTRY so no need to splash out on expensive tickets, just turn up and join in the fun!

6stages, 3days, 60+acts, tons of activities and free entry.. what's not to love?!

A new addition to this year’s festival is the Free Fringe Film Festival in a 'Cinema in the woods', screening independent films from young, up and coming armature filmmakers and the critically acclaimed ‘Taming Wild’ by Esla Sinclair.

And if all that wasn’t enough, a 5 meter high permanent sculpture of a rearing horse is being built on site. The sculpture, which is being made from metal and wood, is well under way!
