A festival with a difference, which organisers promise will be like ‘dreaming with your eyes open’.

A weekend of music, fantasy, entertainment and wonder. Visitors are invited to don their favourite costume to join the event and mingle alongside a host of characters, from fairies, pirates and Vikings, to Storm troopers, knights and elves.

Live music will also be on offer from leading Celtic rock groups The Dolmen and Greenrose Faire, as well as Irish folk band Harmony Glen and UK folk-goth band Inkubus Sukkubus.

Highlights of the festival will include appearances from one of the world’s leading armourers, Terry English, who has created armour for many classic film productions including Excalibur, Aliens, First Knight, Batman and Robin and Gladiator.

World-renowned Italian costume designer, make-up artist and ‘cos-player’, Manuel D’Andrea, will also be a special guest at the weekend and will be giving demonstrations on makeup artistry.

British writer and expert in medieval legends, Professor Roland Rotherham, will also be giving talks at the event, and internationally-renowned artist Anne Sudworth will be exhibiting her works which include magical trees and haunting moonlit landscapes.
