Whitwell Festival of Music’s triumphant return

by | 5 September 2021 | Music, Worksop

Whitwell Festival of Music makes its triumphant return, after the obvious hiatus in 2020, this September.
This year’s line up, once again, doesn’t disappoint, and features the usual mixture of internationally successful chart acts and rising talents, playing on 10th, 11th and 12th September.
Slight alterations have been made to the format this year, to cope with any possible COVID restrictions that might still be in place, and Friday night’s entertainment will be held outside on the main stage. On the programme is The Undercover Hippy, The Members (‘Sound of the Suburbs’), and the hilarious Bar Steward Sons of Val Doonican.
On Saturday, two stages run simultaneously, with acts including Jungle Lion, Tom Hingley (of the Inspiral Carpets) with his new band The Kar-pets, and Eddie and the Hot Rods (‘Do anything you wanna do’).
Sunday’s indoor event is rounded off with the ridiculously talented Funke and the Two Tone Baby.
The is also a spoken word stage, on Saturday, as well as food stalls, retail stores, children’s face painting and entertainment, and a well dressing construction.
For those wanting the full festival experience, camping / camper van pitches are available on Friday and Saturday nights, at two local venues. What’s more, there is a small fringe event at The Royal Oak on the Thursday night, with three local acts playing.
Tickets / camping and the full line up are available at www.whitwellfestivalofmusic.org.uk and www.facebook.com/WhitwellFestival.
