“It’s the weekend before Glastonbury, so what better way to get in the mood than with all-killer no-filler live music from our amazing tributes and a chance to sample some incredible street food from some of the region’s best artisan producers?

“We’ve got weekend and day tickets available and family tickets are just £24 on Sunday, so it’s a great treat for Father’s Day!”
