Camping will be beside a lake with views of the historic Welbeck Abbey.

Venues

The first venues have been announced including The Lost Picture Show which will screen everything from the Victorian experiments of Georges Méliès to the slick Hollywood product of today, via 20s musicals, 60s psychedelia and 70s schlock horror; Buster Keaton, Marilyn Monroe, David Lynch, Werner Herzog and many many more.

A literary yurt will play host to several authors a day reading from and discussing their writing - including Jon Ronson, Nat Segnit, Richard Milward, James Atlee, Katharine Hibbert, Richard King, and Ben Masters.

A Secret Post Office will allow visitors to send postcards to each other for free via a No Direction Home 'internal mail system' (example address: "Rob with the curly hair in the blue and yellow tent by the large oak tree") and a No Direction Home Games Track offers old-school sports day fun of the egg and spoon / tug of war variety.

Overlooking the lake will be a Flying Boathouse, curated by The Local's Howard Monk. Here you'll be able to grab an ale and take in all that the Flying Boathouse Society has to offer such as instrument-making, songwriting, live bands, quiz olympics, DJs and much more.

Welbeck's own School of Artisan Food will run a worskhop venue at the festival. It'll offer classes throughout the day, including opportunities to learn everything from how to make butter from scratch to how to make Indian flatbreads.

Other workshops include Chango Drumming, create magical creatures of clay, kite making, hat, origami, murals & comics, and a chance to run away with the Circus!

More information will be here when available.
