VenuesMost events take place either at the Leisure Centre or at Memorial Hall, but other venues are also used, such as Beverley Minster and the Priory. All the venues are within a ten minute walk from the campsite and the Festival Village at the Leisure Complex is a perfect place to wander about, browse through the various trade, craft and music stalls, enjoy the workshops and activities for all the family and listen to the many performances at the Wold Top marquee while enjoying a pint of the specially created Festival Brew.
The 'Festival Village' will this year feature even more events plus there will be an added 'Americana' theme with USA artists also making an appearance.
Willow Lane (Quiet / Family) SitePart of the festival campsite will be moved to an additional site close by, providing quiet camping, and will be ideal for those wishing to get away from the festival for an hour or two to enjoy a quiet period. The new site is a 15 minute walk away past the majestic Beverley Minster, a field of grazing cows and along quiet green lanes. Alternatively campers can take a shuttle bus that will be laid on specially for them - more information will be available shortly.
When booking, those preferring to camp on the new site will need to specify 'Willow Lane (Quiet / Family) Site' as opposed to 'Festival Village Site' which will be at it's regular location
No vehicle policyMotor vehicles are not allowed on the 'Festival Village' site, and the festival will be providing off-site car parking, with security, for vehicle owners.
More information will be here when available.
