Wolly the Clown

Clown/mime and jester –

Wolly is one of the funniest and most talented performers around.

He combines gentle clowning techniques, mime, circus skills and uninhibited audience participation. His hightly visual style moves from HilariousPhysical comedy to breathtakingly dangerous stunts. His finale needs to be be seen to be believed.

Festival Tune!

Castle Park by Will Pound

Our festival Patron, Will Pound has created a tune in honour of our new home at Castle Park, and we are inviting you to learn it too! 
Download the notes, kindly transcribed by Will’s A Day Will Come band Jude Rees here.
Will will be hosting a Castle Park tune workshop on his Facebook page, alongside his weekly Sunday concert on Sunday 28th June. 

Listen to the tune & a message from Will here.

Hope you enjoy the tune, looking forward to hearing it at the bar sessions next year! In the meantime, please do share your playing with us. And congratulations to Will on his 5* reviews for his new project, A Day Will Come. We can’t wait to see it on the main stage in 2021!

Shooting Roots

Time for some Shooting Roots fun!

Shooting Roots is an organisation for folk arts, run for young people by young people. They run workshops at various summer festivals, as well as smaller events throughout the year, passing on a love for all things folk to 12-18 year olds.


Dough and Brew

Our delicious Sourdough Pizza is created in our Wood Burning Oven & our amazing Pancakes are cooked in a traditional French way but served with a very English twist.
Our sourdough is left to prove for at least 18 hours to give a fantastic flavour to our pizza. In fact everything is about the flavour.
Our oven produces incredibly tasty food from Pizza to slow roasted meats…we can create a menu just for you.
