What's On at this Year's Festival

Friday 1st Sept - It's Friday Night, It's Comedy Night 2023

(7pm - 11pm, Over 16's only).

Details will follow as we near the festival date..

The comedy night is just the start of what is set to be part a truly memorable weekend (or not depending on how many beers you have). Most importantly the event will support local charities for which we have all been able to raise thousands over recent years. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you all.

Food will be available on the evening.

So come along and enjoy a laugh and a lager. Or some buffoonery and a beer. Or some wise-cracks and wine. Or some sniggers and cider. The list is endless.
