Croissant Neuf at Watchet
Green event leaders Croissant Neuf will return to the Watchet Festival so that one third of the festival can be solar powered. The second stage will be run by Croissant Neuf which has run the stage in the Greenfield's site at Glastonbury Festival and will host a wide range of acts, DJs', and workshops. The Croissant Neuf section of the festival will be powered by a 10-tonne solar truck, which is something the festival organisers are keen to build on year on year.
The real ale bar and Cider Island will make a return alongside Thatcher's Cider and Cotliegh Brewery towards the festival. The on site bars are run by the festival and offer 'happy hours' whilst keeping the entrance price as sensible as possible. The festivals will also host the legendary Something Else Tea Tent, an Open Mic venue, a Silent Disco, The Griffin Tent featuring dance workshops, and an expanded festival market.
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.
More information will be here when available.
