Fans head to Willoman Festival near Thirsk

Thousands of music fans are heading to North Yorkshire this weekend (16 to 19 June 2016) to enjoy the seventh Willowman Festival.

The event is now firmly established at the Hillside Rural Activities Park at Knayton, near Thirsk in North Yorkshire and has gained a national reputation for offering a diverse line up of both new and established artists at a low ticket price.

Among those taking to the stage this year will be punk-pop pioneers the Undertones along with reggae legends Misty in Roots, ska chart toppers The Beat and 90s dance music act Stereo MCs.

The four-day music festival is a major source of income for Hillside Rural Activities Park and the influx of music fans is also a boost for the wider economy of the Thirsk and Northallerton areas.

The event also features family activities and a real ale bar with over ten craft beers provided by Revolution Brewing.

Organiser Steve Williams from Brompton said:

Willowman is now firmly established on the festival calendar and attracts fans from across the country and Europe who are always assured a special Yorkshire welcome.

We are proud to be a Yorkshire festival and every year we endeavour to use local suppliers and employ casual staff from the area to help manage the event.
