To celebrate our rich history of Folk Music, this years line-up comprises a mix of traditional sounds from across the UK and wider afield, offering something a little different for those that like a broader musical experience! With The Strawbs, Cara Dillon and Steve Harley Acoustic trio headlining, plus some unforgettable names and fifteen other acts, this is certain to be a great festival and one live music event not to miss in the South West!
