The festival is musically diverse, offering folk, roots, world & acoustic in addition to spoken word, dance, comedy & literature. The streets of Beverley are awash with entertainment (including morris dancers, magicians, comedians and children’s entertainers) which seem to take over every available street corner. Many of the town’s pubs also host musical performances at the lively Fringe.
At the festival village, expect to find a craft and music fair, a children’s marquee with events and entertainment specifically for children, the Area 2 youth tent similarly provides non-stop workshops & music for young adults. For those who don’t like to miss out, visit the late night festival tent and enjoy a drink while hearing the best of new & emerging artists (and the odd headliner!!)
The festival moves to Beverley Racecourse for 2013.
