After a huge demand the Little Orchard Festival is back again for 2015. We have had two amazing years and now we'repreparing for a third. Once again we'll be howcasing incredible bands and talent from all over the world accompanied with a huge selection of delicious ciders. You can expect big colourful marquees like the Golden Delicious Acoustic Cafe, The Big Little Apple Top, Granny Smith's Dance Emporium and the BBC Introducing stage will all return for 2015.
Three days of incredible festivities, sea shanties, a huge selection of world class bands and musicians, dancing and fun for all the family. We've got free tractor rides, cider sampling, delicious grub and loads of activities all on the beautiful working cider farm that is Healey's, home of the famous Rattler. The Little Orchard festival promises to be another magical weekend of festivities and camping fun. Don't delay and grab your tickets today!
The BBC Introducing stage will once again be showcasing an array of the best local and national acoustic artists, plus more major headline acts will be rocking the main stage. Ben Ottewell of Gomez, Mad Dog Macrea, Gary Stringer of Reef and Number One chart toppers Sam and the Womp all wowed the crowd last year. See you all in the glorious September sunshine for ciders and fun.
This year's eclectic mix of genres is being delivered across three magnificent stages in three fantastic tents. We've added the BBC Introducing stage to the festival, giving us unrestriced access to the most impressive local talent. We'll be updating this line as and when we book new artists.
