Hi everyone the Festival at Grewelthorpe just outside of Ripon North Yorkshire is now taking shape the festival takes place on the 1st 2nd & 3rd of August 2008. It runs from 4pm Friday Afternoon until 4pm Sunday afternoon. This is to facilitate young families being able to pick their children up from school on the Friday and not miss a thing at our festival. The whole of the festival is all about interaction and is unlike most music and arts festival currently being promoted. I have been attending festivals for the past twenty years and my aim was to take all the good things that I had seen and incorporate them into one beautiful and lovingly created happening!
Much of the live entertainment is local (to Yorkshire anyway) and gives the best of new indie as well as some sublime funk and soul, there will be comedy and movies within our multimedia arena. There is also a Northen Soulz tent palying the best in progressive sounds.
My wife Karen is putting the finishing touches to our own healing field set around the sites own stone circle here you can relax have an indian head massage or have a crystal reading and many many more alternative therapies. The diversity is one of the main selling points of the Limetree festival.
In essence the Limetree Festival is aimed at people who have the idea a festival is all about uncomfortable camping and warm cider!! We are limiting our numbers to 2000 so everyone has plenty of space and comfort, children are welcomed and encouraged. There will be no junk food or smelly toliets we have our own composting toilets on site and the rest we will be hiring in to ensure everyone has a pleasant experience.
The site is a beautiful nature reserve and we only want visitors who will respect this ideal, as much of the proceeds is going back into providing more facilities for the whole site.
Anyway I will be back to add more info
Love peace and happiness
