Super Early Bird Tickets Ending!

Please act fast if you want to get hold of Super Early Bird tickets – they have sold quickly and remember “when they’re gone…they’re gone!”.
It is likely that they will sell out in the next day or two. We will then move on to Early Bird prices.

It will be the first appearance for Irish world music band Kila along with False Lights  – the exciting new band created by Jim Moray and Sam Carter – as double header forThursday night.
The original bluegrass rockers Hayseed Dixie headline on Friday. English folk legendsShow Of Hands headline on Saturday and Scotland’s first lady of song, Eddi Reader, closes the main stage on Sunday.
Other acts already announced include Brighton’s sophisticated and unpredictable Moulettes, the award-winning Jackie Oates Trio, and festival favourites Donegal’s The Henry Girls.  Plus there’ll be loads more acts announced soon.

Dylan @ 75

As part of our 10th Anniversary celebrations, we are holding a special concert “Dylan @ 75”. On 24th May 2016 Bob Dylan will be 75.  A couple of weeks later, on Saturday 11th June, we will mark the occasion at the Gate to Southwell Festival with a special show featuring many of the festival artists playing their favourite Dylan songs – and with a house band lead by Jim Moray. It is surely not to be missed.
Watch out for further anniversary news coming soon!

Call For Stewards…

Rosie Garner is delighted to be back organising the stewards next year after her sabbatical last year. We need stewards for set-up (MondayThursday) to help with preparations, as well as about 150 stewards for the weekend and for the clear-up process.
Application Forms are available on the website here.
Whether you have stewarded before or want to try it out, we would love to hear from you.
