Past Festivals

The festival has run since 1972, and we’re working on collating a full line-up over the years. In the meantime, here’s a selection of adverts promoting recent festivals, showing the range and quality of music we have booked: 

2022: After three attempts, the pandemic is over! Time for the Full Festival again!

Dougie Maclean, O’Hooley & Tidow, Merry Hell, Granny’s Attic, Angeline Morrison, Mike Silver, Du Glas, Fly Yeti Fly, Winter Wilson, Handpicked, Isyla, Steve Winchester, plus plethora of regional acts on FAR Stage and in Shanty St. Hurray!

2021: Outdoor-only festival due to Covid

Rising covid levels over the summer forced us to abandon anything indoors, so we ran a reduced festival with just the FAR Stage and Shanty St. It was Cornish songwriter and bard Harry Glasson’s 70th birthday year, so we celebrated with him and ‘Glassonbury’. As the first party that was not a work event, everyone had a ball!

2020: No festival due to Covid!

2019: The Unthanks, Steve Knightley, Midnight Skyracer, Granny's Attic...
