Indie-folk band Brave New Storm the latest additions to the festival line up

We are excited to announce that Sheffield based indie-folk band Brave New Storm are the latest additions to the festival line up! They will be performing on Saturday evening alongside The Backyard Buskers and Richard Brown.

In their own words, Brave New Storm  ‘focus on classic folk themes with a contemporary twist, from nostalgic songs about well spent summers, to protest songs about the student protests of 2010.’ The band have been getting rave reviews recently so make sure you come down and see for yourselves what all the fuss is about!

‘The atmosphere they made was brilliant… Brave New Storm are excellent… emotive’ – Forge Press live review

Tickets are only £7 for adults and £4 for 16s and under. Children under 5 get in Free!
