Ireby Festival

Starts: 25th May 2018

I can say without hesitation that it is a wonderful event. Small, beautiful, great atmosphere, always a lovely crowd. When you couple that with a wide range of music - often some brilliant surprises - it all adds up to a special experience. Paul Adams Director, Fellside Recordings, Workington.

Ireby is a small farming village with a population of about 160. The village is situated on the north west edge of the Lake District National Park World Heritage Centre. It is 12 miles from Keswick  and Cockermouth and 18 miles from Carlisle.

This is the 16th Ireby Festival and over the years it has developed a reputation of early sell outs, so be sure to react fast to be part of one of the few festivals where the actual love for music and one another is still the main point of focus.

With a range of music to suit most tastes, performed in small intimate venues and a main stage venue restricted to just 650 people, Ireby festival presents an unforgettable and unique atmosphere and is considered among the best for those with a real love for live music.
