Locals will be on hand to offer advice and full colour topos for the visitor, as well as providing a free breakfast of bacon/egg butties and endless brews. All in all this is the friendliest festival around, and the company is generally agreed to be welcoming, enthusiastic and slightly mad (in a good way).
Events kick off on the Friday night with a cosy gathering at The Countryman, and things rapidly escalate from there on in. The weather has been ordered well in advance and is predicted to be excellent.
