The 2009 festival sees new attractions added to the festival including Street Dance demonstrations, and the 'Colderidge Poetry society'. The Family camping area was a popular request added last year and is on again this year. The Last Night of the proms evening has been dropped from the bill this year but the organisers state it will return in future years.

There is free car parking on site. A limited number of day tickets maybe made available closer to the date. Tickets go on sale from Monday 6th April.

The festival will have 2 stages, open mic tent, children's circus workshop and play corner, as well as a licensed bar, fireworks, craft and food stalls, and other attractions. There are local camp sites and accommodation in the vicinity.

This year the 'twisted disco' returns on the Sunday evening in the udder stage, plus the festival welcomes the return of the 'Something else tea tent'.

Watchet was an Old Port which has now been converted into a modern marina. It is centrally located near to Exmoor National Park, the Quantocks and there are plenty of beaches. It is also possible to travel here by boat from Cardiff.

This year the festival continues to support their chosen charity 'The Children's Hospice South West' they hope to raise awareness and at the same time promote all the fantastic work that they do year on year.

More information will be posted here when it becomes available.
