Facilities

This venue is flat, has tarmac roadways throughout and there is ample free parking. There are also flushing toilets and showers, and buildings for workshops and sessions plus improved access for those with disabilities.

Other additions to the festival include an on-site shop, a shuttle bus service into Shrewsbury town centre, seated marquees, and an increased capacity. There will still be a bar selling real ales and caterers selling a wide variety of food but it is worth noting that ticketing policy.

As well as two fully-seated stages, expect there to also be an Open Mic marquee, ceilidhs, a dance display area, children's and youth's events, singarounds, workshops, and opportunities to 'Meet the Artist'. There are also many events expected to take place in the town of Shrewsbury itself.

Peace tent

There will be a new venue at this year’s event – a ‘Peace Tent’ to commemorate 100 years since the start of the first World War. The Peace Tent will be a touring venue that marks the centenary of the Great War and celebrates peace and reconciliation through music, dance, drama, poetry and film. The marquee, which seats up to 250 people, will be sited near to the riverside on the festival site at the West Mid Showground in Berwick Road during the four-day event over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Camping

Camping is all on-site allowing festival goers access to all venues and activities.

Dogs

Dogs are very welcome at the festival but are not allowed in venues unless they are assistance dogs.

Charity

Every year, it supports its charity partner Hope House Hospice to fund its music therapy sessions for children with life limiting illnesses and has so far helped raise more than £26,000 for the Morda based centre.

More information will be here when available.
