Acoustic Festival of Britain 2012
The Acoustic Festival of Britain May Fest is an annual 3 day music event with camping. It has developed into a prestigious and relaxed family friendly occasion for all generations with an eclectic programme of Unplugged and Acoustic music from the genres of Folk, Roots, Celtic, Blues, Pop, Rock, Ska, Blugrass and much more.
4 Stages of entertainment and dozens of crafts and food tents together with a huge real ale tent over 200ft long, with a stage powered by bicycles.
One major attraction to this event over the past years has been the thought behind on-site facilities, the provision of flushing loos, wash hand basins and hot showers. A most refreshing change to what is usually associated with festivals! Such thoughts have encouraged generations who once frequented festivals and carnivals in their earlier years back as attendees. You're never too old!
A great family event, with Craft Stalls & Displays, Juggling Schools, Drumming & Guitar Workshops,Soccer Workshops, Yoga Classes, Pixies, Dragons, Story Telling, Comedy. Tribal Dancing, Belly Dancing, Morris Dancing, Face Painting & Stilt Walkers.
Ideally located in Central England, set in the beautiful Staffordshire countryside the olde worlde Racecourse boasts stunning views and easy access on the A50 trunk road linking the M1 and M6. Uttoxeter Railway Station is conveniently situated and is just a 1 minute walk away.
