The Acoustic festival is one of the early events in the music calendar each year,
only a few weeks away now. Held in the centre course of this olde’ world racecourse of rolling green hills, lawns and woods . The campsite is top draw, yes the caravan and camping club are in the centre course, the event fields have hook ups for caravan and campervans and tents are given a spacious area with cars parked next to the tent. Some hot showers and flushing loos, the campsite has solar lighting throughout, plus a glamping village that is cheaper than the local b n b prices ! Good stuff eh?
We’ll add on the grooming portacabin, the free open fired barn to ‘keep warm featuring the open mic sessions.
Children are well catered for, all the thrills of learning new skills, trampolines, swing boats, walkabouts and a story telling tipi plus Free face paints and body painting from the UK champions.
It’s a great relaxing festival get a way, no mass crowds or dirty litter showered grass, plus prices are capped and the food tents have seating, the event site can boast to be the cleanest. Enjoyable, safe and cost effective.
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 Diffordof 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 . An amazing low budget priced ticket for a special weekend
