The Barn Stage

The Barn Stage is accessed via the courtyard complex. This historic brick barn has in the past been the venue for many famous names, during the late 60’s and early 70’s John Chichester Constable staged the Midsummer night’s dream and later the Humberside Pop Festival, names like The Move, Marmalade, Family, Geno Washington, Free, The Pretty Things, Chicken Shack, Fairport Convention and many more, have all performed here giving this unique building an unrivalled music pedigree.

The Big Top

The Big Top is a splendid circus big top and is our second indoor stage located in the festival village.  It is the home of Cornucopia's wonderful World Music programme.


Top Courtyard

The historic stable courtyard plays host to a collection of artists and a pop up cinema all combined with music. The stable booths house exhibitions from local artists and the team from Wom-bling will be decorating garden sheds plus building art installations throughout the weekend. The music programme is a blend of acoustic, jazz, steel band and classical guitar.  This courtyard is also the location of our gin and prosecco bar, all served from a 100 year old fairground stall, which adds a touch of theatre to this area.
