The Great Northern Mod and SKA Festival will be held across four days from August 26th to 28th spanning the Summer Bank Holiday 2016. The venue is the unique and picturesque Thorp Perrow Arboretum in North Yorkshire. Despite being a stone’s throw from the A1 Thorp Perrow is nestled in the Yorkshire countryside on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. With their arboretum and animal attractions including birds of prey the venue is a day out in itself even before the festival gets going!

The Selector will headline on Saturday night in the music arena and Bad Manners will headline Sunday night with their unique and upbeat style fronted by the inimitable Buster Blood Vessel. Both headliners will be supported by many more acts including The Lambrettas, Secret Affair, The Chords and Nine Below Zero to name just a few.

As well as live music there will be many other attractions including organised scooter rides around the 2014 Tour-de-France course through the astoundingly beautiful scenery of the Yorkshire Dales, Show and shine, fairground rides etc.

On-site camping is included in the weekend tickets along with all facilities including showers and an on-site shop for any bits and bobs you may have forgotten.
