Hello Possums,

helecopterAre we all enjoying the Easter break? Of course we are. Lots of excitement as the air ambulance arrived in the village recently, to whisk Barbara’s mother off to hospital. We wish her a speedy recovery.

Y-Not Festival 2013


The annual Y-Not Festival returns to Pikehall on Friday 2nd August, and runs until Sunday 4th August.

As two of last year’s acts – Jake Bugg and Bastille – have since topped the UK albums chart with their debut releases, this is clearly a great place to spot up-and-coming talent. Acts are still being added to the line-up, which already includes The Cribs, The Horrors, The Enemy and Ash. Further down the bill, perennial festival favourites Naymedici and King Pleasure & the Biscuit Boys are making welcome returns – and who knows, maybe Hazel B and The A52s will be rocking the acoustic tent again?

Tickets, which are for the full weekend only, can be bought from the official festival website – but if you’re 12 or under, then congratulations: you can get in for free!
