Playing in the Party Barn on Saturday early evening.  A great sound and they are making headway in creating a national reputation. 'Ebullient, heartfelt alt-folk duo' 'A cross between The Tallest Man on Earth, early Bon Iver and The Lumineers' Stables was formed in January 2016 during late night drinks between Matthew and Daniel in London. Matthew was working on a new project idea at the time and, after playing through what was to become their first single, 'Steam', at 5 am, the duo was born, and quickly went public four months later. 'Beyond Brushes' (their debut album) was

Tenfoot Ukes

Rock, Pop & Soul with a twist! Tenfoot Ukes bring a different flavour to our four stringed friend.  Instead of the usual Formby, you’re more likely to find them playing arrangements of The Flaming Lips, MGMT, The Waterboys, Supergrass, The Stranglers, and many more. “Thankyou for helping make last night’s UkeOff so good.

Room Two

  Festival 8 is delighted to have Andy back as part of the now infamous Silent Disco in the Big Top.  He's got a 2 hour slot on the Friday night.   Andy Male, a founder of RoomTwo, has been involved in the house music and more predominantly the Drum & Bass scene since the early 1990s.

Serious Mischief Theatre Company

We saw this theatre and circus performance at another event and realised it fitted really well with our theme. A fantastic Family Show, so good we had to run it twice on the Saturday so you get chance to see it. An interactive story experience. This turbulent struggle of Sun ‘vs’ Wind heats up with audience participation in true street style with crowds vowing for their favourite character to out shine the other! There is also a chance for children in the audience to get involved by creating the different weather conditions needed for the show because, as we know, you

The Devil’s Prefects

The Devil's Prefects is the brainchild of two of the guys from "festival favourites" Hobo Jones & The Junkyard Dogs and, again this is a character based comedy act. It is a country music (don't stop reading yet!) comedy duo: "They do for country music what Scooby Doo did for paranormal investigation." is a quote that seems to sum them up. With a few memorable cover songs, slightly altered for comic effect, they mainly perform their own material: Their zombie apocalypse song "Shoot 'Em In The Head" was described by The Official Walking Dead FB Page as "Sweet". The
