THE New Forest Folk Festival is fast becoming known as the small family run festival with the big line-up and this year is no exception!

Taking place from July 4-8, the headline acts include Hampshire’s very own album topping twins, Ward Thomas, who last year played the Isle of Wight and Glastonbury and were the first uk artist to top the main album charts with a country album.

Also headlining are Steeleye Span and Feast of Fiddles.

Others appearing are Dean Friedman, Little Johnny England, Julie Felix, Chris Leslie, CoCo and the Butterfields, Gerry Colvin Band, Gilmore and Roberts, Reg Meuross, Matt Black, Southampton Ukulele Jam and many more

Located to the north of The New Forest National Park near Romsey it is an ideal venue for campers with motorhomes, caravans and tents.

The riverside campsite in it’s unspoilt farm setting is just a stones throw from the arena with it’s very popular single stage. The woodland walks around the farm and out on the forest have become quite a feature alongside the music and adds to the holiday atmosphere.

The site opens Wednesday lunchtime to allow people that have travelled often long distances the chance to set up and relax for the afternoon before the evening entertainment begins.

This dog friendly festival has locally brewed real ale, Somerset cider, lager and wine as well as home cooked food. Additional attractions include local trade and crafts folk with a children's area supported by local radio station Wave 105’s Cash for Kids.
