Acoustic Stage

The Acoustic Stage is an area away from the main stage where you can meet people and listen or join in with other musicians and learn new skills.

This year we have a partnership with Greenstage who will be adding a performance area, a kids junk orchestra workshop and a chill zone.

Our good friends from Greenstage will be running a schedule of family friendly activities to compliment the Main Stage programme throughout the day. Come and join us for:

* Acoustic Open stage: check out the blackboard to book your slot
* Sessions and Singarounds: ‘all join in’ tunes and songs hosted by Doghouse and friends
* Junk Instrument Making: tin-can guitars; shakers; hose pipe trumpets and lots more – we supply the junk (but do bring your own creations too) and our resident expert Richard Twinn and his willing helpers are there to show you how and get you ready for the GRAND PARADE!
* The Chill Zone: inflatable chairs and comfy cushions for that much needed snooze

You are welcome to book places on the Open Stage and the Junk Instrument sessions in advance by emailing the Greenstage team at
