Castle Bytham Midsummer Festival (added : 17/06/15 : MG)

From Glenside News (June 2015), Patrick Candler writes …

Following the success of 2014, Bythams Music is teaming up again with the Castle Bytham Fair Committee to put on another musical feast for this year’s Festival – our very own CASTLE ROCK!!

Re-living the spirit of the 1960’s, but also with our own interpretation of those wild and far out sounds, we are now pleased to be able to present our final line up …

Saturday 20 June

To start the Festival weekend we have some brilliant local bands playing on the Meadow Stage at St Martin’s Field … some of these you may already have seen before which is always great, but in true serendipitous style, there are others of whom you have never heard, but then you fall in love with …

3.00  Arc Nation
4.30  Fully Loaded
6.00  Bianca and the Top Cats
7.30  The Fedz
9.00  Blues Volcano

We will also have some fantastic festival foods and a real ale bar which should help make everyone get into the groove on what should be a magical midsummer night!!

Sunday 21 June

A full programme will again be organised on two stages!

Main Stage St Martin’s Field

A whole lotta bands and solo performers and all for free!  What a line up – who needs Glastonbury!

And don’t forget we now have our huge marquee which means that bands and audience can all be under cover if, heaven forbid, it should rain!  And if it is boiling hot, let us pray, then we can all be in the shade.  Either way, everyone wins!

All timings are subject to change.  Further details about the bands and the line up will be in our special souvenir programme which will be available just before the Festival.

We are always looking for folks to come and help us put on the Festival so if you have a few hours spare before or over the weekend, do come and join in the fun.
