Our two performance stages are both housed under cover (summer in the North Pennines can be a capricious affair) with Stage 1 in the My Giddy Aunt Marquee & Stage 2 in the Moonbow Tent.
Our ever-popular real-ale bar tent The Festival Inn will provide either welcome shade from the blazing sun or keep the rain out of your beer (delete as appropriate) but guarantees a great range of real ales, lagers, ciders, wines, spirits & soft drinks.
The Festival Inn will also incorporate Busker’s Corner, an open-mic space for impromptu performances from anybody who fancies having a go.
There will also be a selection of great catering outlets open on-site throughout the event.
THERE IS AMPLE ON-SITE CAR PARKING SPACE AVAILABLE SO PLEASE DON’T PARK ON-STREET IN ALSTON ITSELF BUT PROCEED DIRECTLY TO THE FESTIVAL SITE
The Tyne Willows Playing Field is situated in the centre of Alston, a small market town in the Cumbrian North Pennines. As well as all the delights available on the Festival site Alston also boasts a great range of pubs, cafés & other attractions. There are two petrol stations, a Co-Operative & a SPAR mini-supermarket in the town, so you should be able to easily pick up any last minute supplies.
