Live music is a key feature of the the Festival, with a different act performing on the Friday and Saturday evenings. Acts in the past have included The Black Sheep Band, Agents Orange,The Outhouse Critics, Barely Legal, The Langfords, Reload and Drop the Fish. Providing a wide range, the music suits all tastes and after a few ales it is not long before people are tearing up the dancefloor (grass…). On Saturday afternoon we have a relaxed family session from 12-6pm. We are busy finalising acts for 2019 – keep checking out this page for the latest confirmations. Also, do contact us if you have a suggestion!
Getting the festival started this year is The Peaky Blinders who were formed during a drunken evening early 2015 with the aim to put a band together for a small festival. They set out to learn three songs, three turned into ten, and they played to their first live audience in August 2015. The ten songs have gone onto forty plus and the rest is history!
The Peaky’s have been out and about playing lots of local venues and we are very excited to welcome them to headline our Friday night session.

Saturday evening – The Underdogs
The Underdogs are an acoustic trio from Hampshire, England. Following their success on Friday night at our 2018 festival we welcome them back as the headliner for Saturday night.
They cover a wide range of popular rock and pop from the 60’s to present day. Their laid back approach and willingness to try any request the audience throws at them has made them a favourite at pubs, clubs and parties across the South Coast of England.
