Started in 2010 as a family village event, Bardfest is growing its fanbase each year while continuing to champion local musicians.

This year’s bill includes rock band Walkway, who have supported Status Quo and The Darkness, and Speedometer featuring James Junior, who supported the Earth, Wind and Fire experience at the O2 in June.

There will also be a full bar with 30 ales from some of the country’s finest microbreweries, craft ciders, Prosecco and Pimm’s.

All proceeds will be reinvested into the village’s Sports & Community Club.
