Another overseas guest and more…

We have fantastic news to share about the last of our overseas guests! Doyenne of the Irish harp, Máire Ní Chathasaigh, will be with us, along with her long time musical partner and collaborator, Chris Newman. Described as “Virtuosic, fascinating, dramatic, original, inspired, gloriously adventurous, dazzling, brilliant, stunning, impassioned, electrifying, bewitching, moving, achingly beautiful, influential, revered, unique…” They play harp and guitar to die for.

New site layout

This year, we’ve moved the marquee to the lower ground, beside the flying fox.  This will avoid any problems with puddles if it rains (but of course, it isn’t going to – we’ve pre-ordered sunshine!)

If you’re used to camping in the lower ground, you will need to think about another spot.  There will be additional space in the orchard area and there are oodles of good spots further up the site.
