Music and Farming festival bringing together a pioneering eco farm with an eclictic mix of musicians who 'have something to say' in their music. (Even when it's purely instrumental!)

The farm itself is busy throughout the year as an ecological high welfare farm supplying food locally stretching into London, a social hub, a school, an art gallery and more. Many music festivals are ON farms, this festival is OF the farm. There is much to keep people entertained even without the music. The music however, has been carefully selected from less known to better known acts, and includes artists playing a wide range of styles, in whose style you'd be hard pressed to find better.
As a festival we aim to bring the soul of the city to the soil of the country, in harmonious way, where the surroundings play in integral part of the weekend.

An escape from the city where you can truly taste a different life, and one that is slowly seeping back into the daily fabric of peoples lives - Farm Life! Vegetable gardens, permaculture experiments, feeding the lambs, planting seeds, weaving the biggest woolen blanket ever (guiness record attemot has been registered!), harvesting, cooking, eating, camping, late-night fires, lush music from the stages, singing workshops, talks on ecology, discussions in how we should feed ourselves (as a comunity, country and individual), lush music from the stages, dancing, partying, chilling, drinking, talking, fresh air, late nights, sunrise (the weekend falls on summer solstice weekend), chocolate, storytellers, circus performers, singers, strummers, and maybe even the main Farm owner having his best bit of fun building the bonfire using his tractor, all shall be on the weekend agenda.
We have it planned.

Just bring yourself, a couple of pots, a few spoons, a tent, a blanket, musical instrument if you've got one, wellies (you never know!), an open mind and empty stomach.
Food and water will be available from the cafe, shop and on-site caterers. There is a food box included in the price which we'll cook-up and eat by fires.
As we said - A music and farming festival.
