Festival Description

A festival the way is used to be… the way it should be! With an old English charm, excellent music and a specially landscaped woodland arena; Nuts in May promises to be a magical and intimate addition to the festival scene.

At reasonable prices and up to twelve years of age going free; we’re not only budget pleasing, but thanks to our highly experienced team, we also aim to deliver the same high standards and the attention to detail you’d expect from an event ten times its size.

Our new family-friendly boutique festival, will offer something for everyone, while remaining small, with a wide range of live music over 2 open air stages and 4 covered venues. There will be children’s entertainment, workshops, traders market, bars, open-mic, storytelling, camping from Thursday and much more.

Festival Dates May 4 - 6, 2012
