Beautiful days is The Levellers own festival which they started to "offer not only the best in live music today but to re-create a community spirit that many events nowadays lack or choose to ignore. This event is about people young and old coming together and taking part in something that will be remembered for a long time." It's certainly succeeded in that aim, and has become one of the most popular festivals selling out year after year.
The dates for the 19th Beautiful Days are confirmed as from Friday 190th to Sunday 21st August 2022 at Escot Park, near Fairmile, Devon, with gates opening on the Thursday afternoon.

They will meet and site everyone in the camping area as they arrive.
Organisers will do their best to ensure, in the event of wet weather, that information about alternative routes and/or assistance are made available for those in wheelchairs or with severe mobility issues to get to certain areas of the site.
The seated Theatre Tent features shows for children of all ages and adults with a programme including theatre, comedy, music, acrobatics, mime and magic, but with limited numbers it's best to get there early.
The Sunday theme for 2022 is ‘Peace & Love’.
As well as music there's street theatre, a healing area, lots of site art and sculpture, many children's activities in a large children's area in the centre of the festival, plus theatre, comedy, family camping, camping facilities, licensed bars from local company Otter Brewery, world food, craft stalls, fancy dress, a 'village shop' on site, and more. There is plenty of family camping close to the car parks, campervan fields, caravan pitches and some bell tent & tipi hire options still available.
