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

The first Worrall Festival 2013 fundraiser was a big success!
The sing-a-round event held at the Blue Ball pub in Worrall on Thursday 7th February was enjoyed by everyone who took part and lots of very talented local musicians turned out to show their support for the festival. There are talks of making the sing-a-round a regular event. More on this to follow.
The event succeeded in raising the profile of the main festival which is to be held in June. Dates to be announced soon.
