Tickets for the festival, which was described by 2010 artist Adrian Edmondson as ‘a little piece of heaven on the Wolds’, are on sale now and are selling fast.
We first hosted the Moonbeams festival in 2009 and has welcomed famous names including Show of Hands, Oysterband, Seth Lakeman, Seafret, Braebach and Nizlopi over the years.
Moonbeams Festival organiser Leila Cooper said they are hoping festival goers will leave the tenth festival celebrations with lots of happy memories.
“The Moonbeams Summer gatherings began at my home farm in Kelk in 2007 and a couple of years later, I put on the first Moonbeams Festival at the Wold Top Brewery after music lovers Tom and Gill invited me to use their amazing venue.
“From the very first festival, my vision was to help people enjoy a perfect weekend away in a lovely rural setting, with world class music and award winning food and drink. When we moved the festival to Hunmanby Grange and visitors told me that the sweep into the brewery drive is their cue to kick back and have a great time, I knew that I’d realised my dream.
“The festival has since grown in size, but it still has that lovely friendly intimate atmosphere it began with many years ago, which is a huge part of its charm.”
Tickets for the Moonbeams Festival 2018 cost £80 for adults, £40 for 12 to 17 year olds and £25 for a child aged between 3 and 11. Under threes go free and each camping pass per vehicle costs £15.
