We are now established with the main venue at the Holly Bush. The landlord and staff are very helpful and the beer is always good as is the food.The main concert hall and sessions will be held in the Pub and there is a marquee for the beer festival at the back of the pub. While parking may appear problematic there is a car park within easy walking distance and this is on the main shoppers car park which appears to be a long walk when you drive in but there is a "walk through" to the shops and Holly Bush. Please avoid the part that’s dedicated to the supermarket. If you are going to have a late night session make sure that you invite your neighbours. This is one way way of avoiding any moans. (of course most of us know why we come to folk festivals.)
Camping is an a field a short walk from the Holly bush and will have onsite water, portaloos and a disposal point for caravans and motor home toilets.Its a nice site and a stay until Monday is quite acceptable.
