Irton Hall’s Summer Line-Up
Irton Hall will once again play host to Irt Fest, as Irton Hall’s Summer Line Up returns this August.
The Best Free Festival in the West where Music lovers, real Ale lovers and freinds and family come together for two days of fun.
Celebrating everything Cumbrian, from bands to beers and burgers, bouncy castles and besties this free two day festival from 4 -5 August, will no doubt once again draw crowds from near and far.
Set in the heart of the grounds of the gorgeous 15th century hall, its unique location makes this a festival like no other.
Owner of Irton Hall, Steve Cottrell said: “Last year’s event was fantastic.
It was simply brilliant to see so many people, especially families enjoy the music, whilst their kids ran around the grounds playing all day.”
Things will kick off from 6pm on Friday when the ‘Irton Introducing’ stage will feature some of the best of brand new bands and acts.
Steve said: “We wanted to give our up and coming youngsters a stage. We know it’s hard for brand new acts and bands to find a spot, so we thought we would give over our stage to them.”
Carlisle band Hardwicke Circus, who have been making waves over the last couple of years, will also be there to boost moral for the fledgling artists and will, of course, finish the night off with a top performance.
The Saturday will host more great live music, real ales, burgers and BBQs, as well as family fun and activities such as face painting to keep everyone entertained.
Saturday’s line-up includes talent such as; Red Faces, The Black Guards, Reptilians, Northern Threads, The Deekabouts, Damrak, Ultra Violet Fires, Luke Mateer, Adam Amor, with more still to be announced.
The weekend sees not only brilliant local acts, but bands travelling from outside the county such as DamRAK a four piece Liverpool band who are creating a storm back home as well as The Red Faces, hailing from The Steel City, Sheffield who are currently on the way to a great future…
Save the date in your diary, bring your friends, bring your family and prepare to eat, drink, dance and play at West Cumbria’s best free festival.
