Festival organisers Liam Moorhouse said “I’m delighted to be working with James and Stuart again to bring back the virtual
festival. The line-up is fantastic with familiar faces to the festival family and also some new additions too. I
really hope we can bring a bit of fun to this gloomy winter lockdown and also raise a good amount of
money for two important charities. The 3rd and final virtual festival: Bring it on and make sure you
put Nov 21st in your diary.
James Cowan explained “Liam and Stuart both suggested a final virtual festival so we all agreed on a date. I have
taken a back seat with this on and have left Liam and Stuart to plan the event so that I could concentrate
on a different ongoing project for the following week. I will be helping out with everything on the day, and
after quite a few requests, I might even be making an appearance during Stella’s set”
The event is to held on November 21st and will be streamed on Facebook facebook.com/cumbriasvirtualfest
