Boasting the most impressive line up in its four year history, the Moonbeams Wold Top Folk Festival takes place at Wold Top Brewery near Bridlington on 13-14th July and promises a weekend of great music, entertainment and delicious Yorkshire food and drink.
Confirmed musical artists include Show of Hands (fresh from an appearance at the Royal Albert Hall), Richard Digance, The Duncan McFarlane Band, The Young Un's, Circus Envy, Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin and The Whiskey Dogs Hoedown band and many more'.
There will be music from noon until midnight on two stages and in the session tent. Throughout the day, delicious food will be on sale at the Peace Cake Cafe and Wold Top Brewery will naturally be providing liquid refreshment, including a specially brewed Moonbeams Festival Ale.
There will also be an area for camping with excellent views over the Yorkshire Wolds and there will be a guided walk on the Wolds Way for festival goers to clear their heads on the Sunday morning.
Festival organizer Leila Slater is delighted with this year's line up and said; "This is one of the best small festivals in Yorkshire and has gained a well deserved reputation for its amazing music and atmosphere - I'm sure that the brewery and stunning location play a large part in that! This year we'll be welcoming Show of Hands fresh from their sellout performance at the Royal Albert Hall, as well as welcoming back old friends like Richard Digance, The Duncan McFarlane band and Tom Townsend and his Blues band."
July is set to be a busy month for Leila, who organised charity horse shows before being bitten by the music bug, as she marries her fiancÃƒ ©, Tom Cooper the week before the festival, also at the brewery.
Brewery owner and keen musician Tom Mellor is delighted to host the Moonbeams Wold Top Festival again; "It promises to be a great event. We're high up on the Wolds with spectacular views; it's a fantastic backdrop for an amazing line-up of musicians and entertainers. Adrian Edmondson was spot on when he described it as 'A little piece of heaven on the Wolds' after he headlined here in 2011."
Tickets cost £50 for an adult weekend festival ticket and camping costs £15 per vehicle available from www.woldtopbrewery.co.uk/events/moonbeams.
