Live music

Our main stage has a capacity for an audience of 800 people. The music is provided by top quality original bands and solo artists from a range of genres.

During the day the music will be more chilled, a mix of acoustic, spoken word and child friendly dance along music.

In the evening we turn up the volume a bit and raise the tempo.
