It's near Ashby de la Zouch, 8th - 10th July and includes The Levellers and Vin Garbutt amongst many others, all at a not unreasonable £45 for the whole weekend.

Any other talk-a-whilers thinking about going ?

I'm toying with the idea of going.  I've booked a fortnight off, rather than fritter it away as long weekends in the late autumn as happened last year.  However, I'm toying with the idea of doing something daft, such as going to Portugal for Mostly Autumn's free concert.

Yep, that would count as daft in my books!!

Mind you, going downstairs if MA were palying a free gig in my lounge would as well.

The National Forest festival looks good though, a Saturday afternoon jaunt could be in order.

Just purchased tickets so there's definitely a few left.
In addition to the £45 for the ticket there's £4 per night camping and a £1.50 admin charge.

Just checked my off-duty at work, and I'm working that weekend - darn it!  It only takes us 15mins to drive there from home aswell.  Nevermind, can't win 'em all.

Let us know how it goes...

Well, I found the place  Shocked

It is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best mid sized out door concert venue I have ever been to  Grin
Couldn't face another day of relentless sun so came home a little early but will definitely go back again next year.

A few pictures for your viewing pleasure :
