This year your ears are in for a treat as well as your taste buds. We’ve a new festival music stage with live bands on every day from 10am to 10pm at night and it’s free and there’s a bar too.

There’s also a dedicated stage for local musicians, in our Real Ale and Cider bar on Victoria Square so there’ll be lots of great live music to get your toes tapping whilst you sit and take a breather from the bustling festival site.

The full line up will be released nearer the time, but there’s sure to be a fantastic mix of folk, jazz, rock and acoustic music to whet the most discerning music lovers’ appetite!

Don’t forget to look out for some of the best live street entertainment too, with no one day the same there’s loads to see and do and that will have you ‘dancing in the streets’!
